Summer School - eLearning Secondary Credit (Gr. 10 - 12)

 eLearning Courses

eLearning Secondary Credit (Grades 10 – 12):

Courses in this program are recommended for secondary students who wish to gain up to two credits, over two semesters in a subject they have not previously studied or wish to upgrade a mark in a course that they have successfully completed.  It is ideal for students who cannot attend face-to-face classes due to travel, performance or sporting commitments.  Students for this program MUST be self-motivated and able to commit at least 30 per week to the program.  Note: It is the responsibility of students and their guidance counsellors to ensure that all prerequisites have been met before registering for an eLearning course. 

Civics (CHV2O1) and Career Studies (GLC2O1) are separate courses and therefore require separate registrations.   Up to one credit will be granted upon successful completion of each course (0.5 credits for CHV2O1 and GLC2O1). 

NEW!  Current Durham District School Board students may only take only ONE (1) accelerated credit or TWO (2) accelerated 0.5 credit courses or a Co-operative Education Program or up to TWO (2) credit recovery courses during summer 2019 regardless of the mode of delivery.  Exceptions MUST be requested by the home school principal to the principal of Durham Continuing Education.  All other students may take up to ONE full course or TWO 0.5 credit courses per semester.

eLearning courses cannot be taken concurrently with any other summer school program.
