What Is Distributed Learning

Distributed Learning (DL) is a choice within the current K-12 system that responds to the unique learning needs of individual students. DL takes place outside of the bricks and mortar of the classroom, when a student is working primarily at a distance from the teacher and school. Students may choose to enroll in a distributed learning program due to scheduling conflicts for required courses and/or because of learning preferences. Students in DL Programs control the time, place and pace of their learning, (although students are required to complete their course within the period of one year, start to finish). The DL Program provides students and parents the resources, support, direction and instructional assistance needed to plan and deliver provincial or district approved curriculum. Teachers assess and evaluate students’ progress.
