Blended Learning K-9

The Blended Learning program (RVSBL) hosted through Richmond Virtual School is available for Kindergarten to Grade 7 students. This program provides a flexible learning environment that blends online learning with in-person learning.  Incorporating an in-person learning component has been a pillar of the Richmond Virtual School since inception in 2007, and has contributed to the above provincial average student success rate. 

The RVS BL program will engage students in a combination of self-directed learning and teacher-led instruction to meet the goals of their Student Learning Plan.  During the remote learning time, students will be engaged in both synchronous class instruction through videoconferencing, and self-directed independent learning activities supported by a home facilitator.

The in-person component will emphasize collaborative learning and will help to address the social-emotional and hands-on learning activities that cannot be provided in an online learning environment.  This in-person connection will foster greater community between students and staff.  The in-person time may also be used to gather authentic assessment information.
