    Teacher Directed Registration for 2020-2021 Updated July 27, 2020

    Online Programming at Argyll 2020/2021

    Argyll Centre Update - home of LearnNet and Parent-Directed Home Education Program.

    Due to the recent Government of Alberta announcement that schools will be returning to Face-to-Face instruction in September, we have been receiving a lot of requests for information.

    • If you are presently enrolled in an Edmonton Public School please note that:
    • In mid-August, families can expect their school to contact them about whether their child(ren) will return to face-to-face instruction at school or if they will choose at-home learning for their child. Check SchoolZone.
    • Our goal is to ensure all students receive quality education, and we will continue to offer Online learning throughout the 2020-21 school year.
    • Families who choose to have their child(ren) learn at-home will continue to be attached to the school they are enrolled in, which means they will receive communication from their school (newsletters, updates, etc.).
    • Families who choose to continue at-home learning will receive instruction from a teacher who is conducting online instruction, not necessarily a teacher who is attached to their home school.


    If you are not presently enrolled in EPSB we will be accepting registrations only for returning Grade 12 students for our online learning and Grade 1-12 for our Parent-Directed Home Education program beginning the week of August 17.

    Be safe and enjoy the next few weeks of summer.
