Distance Learning

Independent Study Option


Parents of students not attending school who are of compulsory school age (between 7 and 18 years) must ensure they notify the Homeschooling Office on the prescribed form. It is also recommended they apprise their child(ren)'s school(s) of the family's intention to homeschool.

Grades 9-12 Manitoba Independent Study Option (ISO) courses provide the opportunity and flexibility for school-age learners to study a wide range of compulsory and optional distance education courses. Learners complete courses independently and at their own pace while having some access to a tutor/marker via email or phone. The Distance Learning Unit issues the credit to distance learners who successfully complete an ISO course. The Distance Learning Unit may also issue diplomas to distance learners who successfully complete Manitoba graduation requirements.
