Is EALC a public school?

Does the full-time home learning option still involve teacher support?
Yes,as long as the student remains registered and active as a full-time distributed learner.
What does it cost to join the school?
There is no cost associated with registration and enrolment.
Do we have to leave our current school to register with EALC?
Yes. Students can only be registered with one school at a time.
What is the latest I can register?
Registration is accepted year round, and enrollment is offered as space is available.
I have registered my child – what happens next?
You should receive a confirmation email if the registration is successfully received. Once a place in the program is available, your child’s teacher will reach out to arrange a meeting to discuss next steps, including development of a student learning plan (SLP) for the school year.
What do I need to get started?
Upon confirmation of enrollment, students will need general school supplies and a supportive home learning environment (a place to learn within the home). In addition, access to a computer and internet is strongly recommended.
What resources are provided?
Students registered in the blended learning program will have access to face-to-face learning opportunities, including field trips. All registered and active full-time students will have access to up to $600.00 of student learning resource funds (SLRF) to enhance their home learning experience.
My child has special needs. What support can they receive with DL?
For our Learn at Home and Compass Programs our ability to provide support for students with special needs is dependent on location, student needs and availability of resources. At this time, we cannot guarantee support for all students who enroll.
What happens if we change our mind and want to go back to our neighbourhood school?
You will have to re-register at your child(ren)’s neighbourhood school and de-register with EALC. Your child’s files will then be transferred. If a student leaves prior to February 15, any utilized SLRF funding over 50% will need to be reimbursed to the school.
