Prince George parents are wanting to know more about their child's education in a system that's never been conducted by a school district.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced the immediate closure of all B.C. schools on March 17 when Spring Break began, but regions have since enabled online regiments for students to continue their studies at home.
School District 57 (SD57) has adjusted its day-to-day learning and Superintendent Anita Richardson answered some commonly asked questions from local parents regarding the new system.
"That continuity of learning should be focusing on literacy, numeracy and the core competencies," says Richardson, explaining students should be learning 10 to 12 hours per week.
