  • SCOT stands for Self-directed Courses with Online TeacherThis presentation will discuss an innovative project, which, unlike the Virtual School model, is a cooperative effort of the 12 francophone school boards in Ontario.This project, an initiative of the 12 FLSB and managed by the CFORP is subsidized by the Ministry of Education. Each board supplies one subject specialist teacher, and students from all boards may take courses from any of these teachers in an online environment.Students also have the benefit of a support teacher in their local school.This model is exportable/replicable in other jurisdictions.
