ProjectSPIDER is a grades 7-9 Distance Learning initiative within School District 46. It offers a flexible range of learning opportunities to middle-year adolescents and their families. It should appeal to motivated, supported learners, drawn to engage with their peers and the broader community in cross-curricular projects. This is an evolution of the District’s well-established SPIDER Elementary program (Students Participating in Distance Education Resources).
ProjectSPIDER fosters a Supportive Community of Learners. Regular gatherings on Thursdays and Fridays allow students to explore ideas together and supplement their home and community-based learning with a combination of teacher, local expert, and peer-led sessions. Online blogs help maintain connections among learners, their families and teachers. Courses offered include English, Socials, Science, Math, Art, PE and varied electives.
Students have the option of participating in grade 7, 8, or 9 cohorts SPIDER Secondary program (Students Participating in Distance Education Resources), known as ProjectSPIDER, offering learning in a blended learning environment using a project-based learning model. For more information, families should contact the ProjectSPIDER Principal.
*The ProjectSPIDER program (Gr.7-9) is currently full. Please contact the ProjectSPIDER Principal if you are interested in adding your child’s name to the waitlist.
