Important information concerning pivot points
When a parent/guardian selects “at school” or “at home” delivery, we are asking that the commitment be made for a minimum of one quarter of the school year. We are calling the dates that students can change “pivot” points. The first quarter ‘pivot point” is November 10 (the last day of the first quarter). The division needs to have commitment to delivery choices, since it would be extremely difficult for the division to assign teachers their classes (at home or at school delivery), and for teachers to provide high quality instruction with students moving back and forth between delivery options on an ongoing basis. However, the division is fully aware that the province could change what the structure of schools looks like with very little notice, depending on public health circumstances, and the division will respond accordingly.
