DLC courses are created specifically for students learning in an online environment. Lesson plans, course notes, reading materials, instructional videos, and assessment tools are developed by DLC teachers to work for distance learning students. Because everything is online, course materials – including course notes, pre-recorded videos and assessment tools – can be accessed as many times as needed, any time of day, any day of the week.
Each course from Kindergarten through Grade 9 contains approximately 200 hours of course material (depending on how quickly or slowly the student is able to work). This is equivalent to one hour per day, five days a week for the school year – the same as in a brick and mortar school.
For students in Grades 10-12, our courses contain approximately 100 hours of course material (varying with how quickly or slowly the student is able to work), which is equivalent to one hour per day, five days a week for one semester. There may be times when additional home work time needed to stay on pace.
Yes. We offer a full spectrum of Kindergarten to Grade 12 courses including all core and a wide variety of interest-based electives at the high school level.
Any Saskatchewan resident under the age of 22 has the option to register as a full-time online learner with the DLC and receive access to our courses free of charge.
Access is also available to learners who wish to enroll in one or more of our online courses yet remain registered with their geographic division. In that case, the resources provided and the learning experience will be the same however course fees will apply.
