As of Friday, April 17th (2020), over 1,100 Chromebooks were distributed to Bruce Grey Catholic District School Board (BGCDSB) students and families to support Phase two of Distance Learning.
In response to a family survey regarding technology and access to internet services, families were able to request a device for each student that required one in order to participate in the Learn@Home distance learning.
Families set up a time when they could drive up to their children’s school and safely pick up their devices honouring physical distancing.
In addition, the board launched a new virtual school for each school within the district, that serves as a one-stop shop for families to access school announcements, safe and secure teacher classrooms, helpful videos and access to a parent help desk.
Everyone at BGCDSB is working hard to support student learning through our new Distance Learning initiatives.
