Important information regarding Distance Education & Homeschooling

Distance Education is for those students who have been exempted from in-school attendance and are permitted to participate in distance learning through their school and with the participation of the teachers.

Important: medical exemption forms for Distance Education can be found on the SWLSB's home page in the News! section.

Homeschooling requires the parent to develop a learning project and assume full responsibility for instructing his/her child. The child will no longer be affiliated to the school nor be eligible for instructional materials or follow-up from the school, but will have access to certain services via the SWLSB Homeschooling Department. Homeschooling as an entity is under the jurisdiction of the Direction de l’enseignement à la maison, a branch of the Ministry of Education.
