THE ONTARIO CURRICULUM: Interdisciplinary Studies

CREDIT CROSSOVER: Although Interdisciplinary Studies courses focus on different subject matter, the IDC3O course code can only count as one credit on a student’s transcript, even if multiple IDC3O courses are taken. For example, a student that has completed IDC3O – Athletics and IDC3O – Data Literacy will only earn one credit in total on their final transcript. Each course (along with the final grade) will show, however, a credit value of zero will be applied to the second IDC3O course.

IDC3O online will provide students with an understanding of how to make connections among diverse subjects and disciplines. Students will leave the course with a deep understanding of research and inquiry as it applies to athletics in the past, present, and future. IDC3O online is meant to be highly applicable to the student’s current life as an athlete, and as such, contains assignments and projects that encourage them to apply the information in a personal and relevant context. Students will study athletics in terms of physiology, history, training strategies, and careers.

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction.  The Blyth Academy model of small class sizes, flexible scheduling and individualized approach have enabled us to remain faithful to our standards. Our commitment to ongoing and meaningful communication between school, teachers, students and families has been critical to this effort.

Although our students have transitioned into summer mode and COVID-19 restrictions have begun to loosen, we are looking ahead to what September will hold for our campuses and families.
We want to be clear - our preference and our priority is to get students back to our campuses, but we must ensure this is done in a safe and effective way. While we await official guidance from Public Health and the Ministry of Education, a "return to school" task force has been hard at work putting concrete operational plans in place for all likely scenarios. This includes a full return to campus with safeguards, a blended model of virtual and in-campus learning and the continuation of fully virtual classrooms. All scenarios will provide robust learning and live, daily instruction and interaction with teachers and peers. 
With ten campuses across Ontario, we realize that each one of our schools is a unique space and community. We will be implementing across-the-board policies on hand washing, facility cleaning and social distancing measures. Each school is also prepared to pivot individually based on the guidance of local health authorities and to best serve students and families. 
Our recent survey showed that over 80 per cent of Blyth Academy families are eager to return to campuses, and we are hard at work to prepare for this day. As September's scenario becomes clearer and more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate.
