Multiple School divisions partner for remote learning for immunocompromised students


A number of school divisions in the Westman area (Brandon, Mountain View, Park West, Rolling River, Southwest Horizon and Swan Valley) have been collaborating to provide remote learning for students in Kindergarten to Grade 8, who are immunocompromised or who have immunocompromised family members in their household and have been medically advised not to attend school.

The partnership will have school divisions provide staff members or financial resources, so that students who have been medically advised not to attend school will be able to participate in remote learning during this COVID-19 experience. This new partnership between the school divisions will be called the Westman Consortia.

The School Divisions are currently working with their schools and communities to identify students and families who would receive remote learning. The schools will then be contacting these families next week to formalize how this remote learning plan will look. Our anticipated start date will be September 17 and 18 as we will have a staggered start approach.

If parents in the Brandon School Division have any questions about this new arrangement, they are encouraged to contact their school principal.
