LETHBRIDGE, AB – The Lethbridge School Division is broadening its online learning horizons with a brand new pilot program that will start this fall.

Officials say this E-Learning program is not a COVID-19 response but rather a new long-term structure.

Students and families wishing to utilize online education will be required to make a year-long commitment to engage with a virtual class and teacher.

Grades one through eight will feature full-time E-Learning, taught by staff at either the new Dr. Robert Plaxton Elementary School or Senator Joyce Fairbairn Middle School, depending on the grade.

The high school E-Learning pilot program is still being developed but the public school division says those students will be able to choose their courses to give them more flexibility.

Expression of Interest applications, for the grade one to eight E-Learning program, must be submitted by March 23.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
