Summer Cooperative Education

Summer Cooperative Education opportunities are being offered to grade 11/12 students to earn 1 or 2 credits toward their OSSD.  This planned learning experience integrates classroom theory and learning experiences at a workplace to enable students to apply and refine the knowledge and skills acquired in a related curriculum course or a locally developed course


Rainbow District School Board teachers deliver online courses using a learning management system that students can access at school and at home.  Students can supplement their timetable with an online course, giving them greater flexibility and choice in completing their secondary school diploma.  Students can take courses that are not available at their home school or not accessible due to scheduling conflicts.  The online courses provide a new learning option for students ─ one that maximises the use of technology.  E-Learning courses are very interactive.  A wide variety of technology is used to support online learning, including electronic whiteboards, chat rooms, e-mail, and discussion groups.  Contact your Guidance Department for the current list of E-Learning courses offered by Rainbow District School Board.

The following e-Learning courses were offered by RDSB for 2011-2012. A similar list of courses will be offered for 2012-2013 (other options may be available through e-Learning Ontario).
