“We created Sask DLC to provide students more opportunity and choice in their learning and it is wonderful to see students around the province benefiting from that.”

The province said more than 2,500 full-time K-12 students and 4,300 part-time grades 10-12 students are currently participating in one or more courses — approximately 1,300 more students since Nov. 30, 2023.

“Whether our students are studying full-time online or taking a course or two to supplement their in-class learning, they are able to access high-quality education that fits their schedule,” Sask. DLC chief operating officer Darren Gasper said. “It has been wonderful to see student interest in online learning grow throughout the year and we will continue to build on that success.”

Online summer school registration will open in May for classes from July 2 to Aug. 9 at a cost of $500 per course.
