FVDES and Alternative Education Options for Chilliwack School Aged Students for 2022-23:

Middle School Hybrid Learning Program

The Chilliwack School District is offering a Hybrid Learning Program; blending online at home learning with in-class instruction.  Students will cover the complete BC curriculum and will need the support of an adult, home facilitator.  The expectations and rigour of this program are high.

The Hybrid Learning Model:

  • delivers BC curriculum through a blend of in person and online learning.
  • is a program of choice for middle school students (Gr.6, 7, and 8).
  • students are connected to one school (Chilliwack Middle School or Vedder Middle School).
  • students attend in-class instruction two days per week (Tuesdays & Wednesdays), and experience remote learning three days per week.
  • requires a laptop (mic, camera, speakers) that is capable of online conferencing and a high-speed Internet connection.
  • requires parents to be responsible for transportation.

If you are interested in more information about the Hybrid Learning Program for your child, please refer to the SD33 Hybrid Learning Webpage:  http://www.sd33.bc.ca/hybrid-learning
