More Sample Courses

What questions do you have for us?
ADLC was born as an experiment with mail-in-education

This experiment was successful and ADLC continued as part of the Alberta Government
1996 and 1997
In 1996, ADLC created and launched its first online course

In 1997, ADLC became part of the Pembina Hills Regional School Division, rather than part of the Alberta Government.
Present Day ADLC
We have over 250 courses spanning from grade 1 to grade 12. These courses include all core subjects and a variety of options.

Due to the budget last year, we now have different solutions that schools can choose from. These solutions outline what ADLC can provide.
What does this get you in Elementary and Junior High?
Free access to all of our online courses. Div 1 is all online, as is Junior High. All online courses include text-to-speech.

Access to the print courses that ADLC has developed

*Schools are expected to register their students with us and report an end
of year mark.
What does this get you in Senior High?
Contracted Services
ADLC marks and teaches the course

Jr High and Elementary pays tuition because funding did not change. School gets 100% funding, ALDC gets 56%

Sr High does not pay tuition. There is a 50/50 funding split.

Both pay for print materials
and textbooks.

More modern, lots of videos and multiple ways to learn

Students start with Bootcamp, then check out the links at the top and bottom of the page

Streaming has been slow but we are moving all videos onto our streaming server which will address this issue. We also have a list of URLs we can send out if you would like to access them outside of the course.

Please use Chrome or FireFox

Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
Access to ADLC developed print materials through PrintPlus. Online components of print courses and textbooks are not included.

Division Branding on courses

Option to get a modifiable version
of the online course

All grade levels have PrintPlus, but it runs differently depending on the grade
Sr High
There is an online database of all print materials that ADLC has developed

You will need your division's username and password for access

You will need to download the appropriate plugin for the database to function properly

Please note, some courses have online components that are not available through PrintPlus and textbooks are not available through PrintPlus

Often the print and the online versions of the courses are not the same
Elm/Jr High
Teachers will need to request the course, and specify in the "special requests" field if they want the online or print versions of the course.

There is no database for these courses.
