We offer a strong team of dedicated teachers who are committed to helping your child succeed.
A Flexible Approach to Learning at Home
Our elementary teachers are designated as either Primary (K-3) or Intermediate (Grades 4–6). We know that every learner is unique and EBUS is ideal for students and parents who want flexibility in scheduling, programming and individualized, project-based learning opportunities. We follow the BC Ministry of Education curriculum and our teachers work closely with our learner’s families to support and guide the learning that is happening at home by providing timely feedback, assessment of learning samples, additional resources and strategies. Through regular communication, feedback and assessment, elementary teachers ensure that families know how their student in progressing towards meeting the grade-level learning objectives. EBUS elementary teachers place an emphasis on supporting the development of strong numeracy and literacy skills for learners in grades K-6.
At EBUS, we pride ourselves on the ‘personal touch’ and our teachers excel at working collaboratively with families to develop and support a learning plan that works for each child.
Elementary Program (K-7) at EBUS – We provide a unique blend of structure and flexibility. Want to home-school but don’t know how to teach Gr. 6 Math? We’ve got an online course for that! Taking a trip and want your child to get Social Studies credit as they travel? We’ll help you create a unique learning plan! Stuck on something? Skype or phone your teacher!
All of our teachers are highly skilled at delivering the best possible online learning experience for their students. From virtual class sessions and special guests to field trips and Skype meetings, students have the opportunity to be involved in various special projects throughout the school year.
Teachers work with parents and students at the start of each school year to develop a plan which guides instruction and assessment for the coming school year. Parents work with their children on a daily basis to help them complete their work, while teachers guide that progress throughout the year, assessing selected work samples and providing feedback.
EBUS uses an online program called Moodle – it’s like our online schoolhouse! Moodle is a secure, password protected site which is available to all students and parents. Each K-9 teacher maintains a homeroom in Moodle for news items, resources, and drop-boxes for submission of student work. Additionally, each grade has a classroom within Moodle with subject/unit guides and related resources, links, and activities.
