Chromebook distribution supports Distance Learning

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.
