Parent "Tech Support" - Thursday, September 24

We've enrolled our child in virtual learning; what do we need to know?

Join us for a live session for parents on Thursday, September 24. Staff from the OCSB Learning Technologies department will be addressing some of the most common tech support questions that our teachers, schools and system have received. Staff will demonstrate the tools students are using, including Hapara Learning Management Software, Google Suite Apps for Education, and the student portal. Parents will also be shown how to use the new Parent Portal and more.

We will hold two sessions, one for grades K-6 and one for grades 7-12, at the times listed below. Both sessions will be similar in content, but reflect each panel where needed. If you can’t join one session time, feel free to join the other.

You can also ask your own questions beforehand, or during the session, using the Google form at the link below.

Tips for parents to support virtual learning

Virtual learning is a new experience for all of us. Here are some Tips for Parents to help navigate this new learning landscape.

Principal's Message

Welcome to the OCSB Virtual Academy!

Our Board’s spiritual theme this year is 'Walk Humbly with God', calling all of us to be aware of our own personal wellness and encouraging us to participate in God’s restorative justice. This theme is especially appropriate for, in the midst of this Covid pandemic, we are called to take care of ourselves and each other. At the OCSB Virtual Academy, our goal is to help students reach their full potential by instilling confidence through a synchronous and asynchronous learning model. Although our work is online, we are a caring community encouraging those who need assistance to reach out, for help is always available at our school or at a student’s home school.

Despite these challenging times, I hope everyone had a chance to rest and re-charge this summer. I wish our community a safe and successful 2020-21.

Be well,

David Nash

Principal, Virtual Academy 7-12
