ACT public students to learn from home in term 2

At the start of term 2, ACT public schools will be moving to an alternative delivery of learning with most students to undertake their learning from home.

ACT public schools will move to remote learning in term 2, beginning Tuesday 28 April. This will be different from what families have experienced over the last few weeks, while teachers have been developing a new kind of learning.

Most public school students will undertake their learning from home.

For parents and carers who cannot keep their children at home, due to work or additional needs, the ACT Government will provide supervision at a reduced number of public school sites for these students to continue to be provided with support.

Students at these sites will be supervised by Out of School Hours Care staff supported by teaching staff, and allied health and support staff. Students at these sites will be undertaking the same remote learning program as their peers at home.

The ACT’s four specialist school settings will continue to be available for students enrolled in these schools. Muliyan, the Off Campus Flexible Learning Program, will also be available for those who need it.

The Education Directorate is asking families to register their children through an online form if they are unable to have their children at home. This will assist the government to confirm how many and which school sites will be required to host children who continue to attend. This will also consider students who are usually in a Learning Support Unit or who have other additional needs.
