At Pembina Trails we offer online learning through a partnership
with the St. James-Assiniboia School Division called InformNet. Online courses
are available to interested students who cannot get into a course offered at
their school, need a credit for graduation or would like to try a course not
offered at their home school.
InformNet courses provide students with daily instruction,
assignments and evaluation through regular email and web-based interaction with
a certified high school teacher.
InformNet is an accredited online high school. Students who
participate in internet-based learning on InformNet may achieve high school
credits, approved by Manitoba Education. Credits are provided by the student’s
home school when subject requirements are met.
Guidance counsellors and school administrators have the right to
limit access to online courses if there are relevant academic issues that would
affect a student’s progress in an online environment.
Who is InformNet for?
InformNet provides options and opportunities for learners in many
students registered in high schools that may not be able to
provide core, complimentary or optional courses for a variety of reasons (e.g.
staffing, scheduling and enrolment)
students who are currently on a home school program (e.g. due to
health issues and schools of choice decisions)
mature and adult students in a variety of situations (e.g. those
enrolled in adult learning centres, part-time students and those desiring
upgrading or additional courses for continuing education purposes
students whose life and career goals frequently require extended
periods of time away from their designated school (e.g. those students who are
involved in the performing arts and elite athletics)
students whose family circumstances necessitate extended periods
of travel or relocation (e.g. missionary or humanitarian work, cultural
exchanges and career- or job-related transfers)
