K - 9 Learn at Home Program Information

Our Learning @ Home DL program is for students from Kindergarten to Grade 9 who reside in the School District 6 (Rocky Mountain) region. It is designed for those families who would like a flexible program that is geared to their particular situation. Each family will have unique reasons for wanting educational opportunities tailored to their situation, with a flexible means for learners to complete their elementary school years outside of the traditional classroom setting. 

The Elementary Program  ( K-5 )

  • The elementary programs are designed to be delivered by a Home Facilitator, who is most often a parent, guardian, or other family member who can support the child at home full-time.
  • RMDL elementary programs offer all of the curriculum content through engaging, clearly organized lessons delivered through our online course management system, Microsoft TEAMS and Moodle (rmdl.ca)  Students are also provided with books and print resources that accompany the online lessons.
  • RMDL students and their Home Facilitators receive support from their RMDL Teacher with program delivery, assignment feedback and assessment, weekly connections, and live online workshops. Your child’s teacher will complete formal report cards three times a year (December, March and June).
