Extended Learning Opportunities (Flex Block)

This is a powerful initiative that Robert Bateman Secondary embarked on back in 2016/17.  Several staff have been trained and have facilitated a process that allows all students to be successful at our school.

Extended Learning Opportunity (ELO) is a part of our Pyramid of Interventions at RBSS. We have implemented ELO blocks where students will be identified by teachers to come to their class for extra support (re-teaching concepts, exam re-writes etc.).  All students are expected to be involved in academic study during ELO time, in a supervised study area/classroom,  and are encouraged to see their teachers for help or study, if they are not already assigned to a class. Students who have a “spare” in the morning of an ELO block will be expected to attend classes if they have been “targeted/selected” by one of their teachers. Students who have unexcused absences during ELO blocks will be assigned to the Bateman Achievement Centre for two lunch hours. For 2017/18, ELO will be held every Tuesday.
