Parent's Role

Parents need to provide a stimulating, supportive and supervised environment for their child and to be aware of their child's progress and challenges. Burnaby Online encourages ongoing communication between parents and teachers and offers advice, assistance and feedback whenever needed.

All courses are teacher-led and students are encouraged to work at a speed best matched to their success, however that speed is expected to be productive and purposeful, with courses being completed in a timely way.

Clarification of the Ministry position on the parent’s role in online education is contained on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
