St. Peter's to Offer Hybrid Educational Model

St. Peter's College has announced an update to their plans for the 2020 Fall term.

Through the guidance of the Government of Saskatchewan’s April 23rd announcement of the Re-open Saskatchewan Plan, St. Peter’s College will coordinate with all Saskatchewan post-secondary institutions and deliver a hybrid, or blended, approach to education delivery this fall. Educators feel a combination of in-person classes and online and distance education instruction gives students the best chance of academic success in the ever-changing environment of the global pandemic.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Saskatchewan post-secondary sector has worked together to safeguard our students, faculty and staff, and have established principles and protocols which have guided our incremental approach to fall programming.

The common staged and blended model institutions will combine online, classroom, laboratory, shop, clinical and physical instruction, while adhering to the public health guidelines as delivered by the Government of Saskatchewan’s Chief Medical Officer. The concept reflects comprehensive planning work done by our staff and faculty over the weeks since the emergence of COVID-19. It also provides the programming flexibility needed to manage the risks of the pandemic while ensuring the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff.

“St. Peter’s College is exploring all available information and developing plans to ensure the comfort and safety of our learning environment for our students, staff, faculty and those that rely on the College as a part of the community” remarked Al Hergott, Chair of the Board of Governors. “Though we are excited for the new Fall term we encourage patience as the whole province works through the phases of the Re-open Saskatchewan Plan. Any new pandemic developments that could require adjustments to the timelines or approach of our planning will be shared accordingly.” 

We are here for you and will provide the support you need to make the decision for Fall courses and you post-secondary planning. Students are encouraged to continue to monitor the St. Peter’s College website at www.stpeterscollege.ca for additional details about their specific program and classes. Any questions about your academic plan can also be asked through our Student Services office either online or by phone.
