30-Day Withdrawal Policies

30-Day Non-Start Policy

St. Gabriel Learning Centre is introducing a 30 Day Non-Start process for students who have not started their courses within a reasonable time. Our goal is to ensure student success. Starting when the course begins is an essential part of success as it will allow students an adequate amount of time to learn content.

What does this mean for students?

Once a course is open, students will have 30 days to submit their first assessment. In the case of late registration, students will have 30 days from the day they are registered to submit their first assessment. We believe that it is important for students to start their new course right away to begin the regular routine of advancing in the course.

  • During this 30 Day window, the student, and the parent/guardian will receive two emails and phone calls: one at Day 10 (3 weeks until withdrawal) and another at Day 20 (1 week until withdrawal) as reminders that the student is encouraged to submit some work in the course or risk being withdrawn from the course at the 30 Days of inactivity. The student will also receive Moodle messages with these reminders.
  • If a student is withdrawn from a course, the parents/guardians of the student will need to communicate with the St. Gabriel Learning Centre Course Teacher and/or School Administration to discuss possible reinstatement and planning for future success. Once this communication has taken place, the Course Teacher and School Administration may reinstate the student in the course for a period of 5 school days. During this grace period, the student must submit an assignment.

If the student does not submit, the student will be withdrawn from the course and the course will be entered as Incomplete.

30-Day Stall Policy

St. Gabriel Learning Centre is introducing a 30 Day Stalled process for students who are not progressing through their courses in a consistent manner. Our goal is to ensure student success through regular submission of assessments which allows students to move at a pace that is conducive to learning.

What does this mean for students?

Once a student submits work, the student will have a maximum window of 30 days to submit the next assessment. We believe that it is important for students to not only get started on a new course but to maintain a regular routine of advancing in the course.

  • During this 30 day window, the student, and the parent/guardian will receive two emails and phone calls: one at Day 10 (3 weeks until withdrawal) and another at Day 20 (1 week until withdrawal) as reminders that the student is encouraged to submit some work in the course or risk being withdrawn from the course at the 30 Days of inactivity. The student will also receive Moodle messages with these reminders.
  • Every time a student submits work and it is graded, the 30 Day clock is reset and the process begins again.
  • If a student is withdrawn from a course, the parents/guardians of the student will need to communicate with the St. Gabriel Learning Centre Course Teacher and/or School Administration to discuss possible reinstatement and planning for future success. Once this communication has taken place, the Course Teacher and School Administration may reinstate the student in the course for a period of 5 school days. During this grace period, the student must submit an assignment. 
    • If the student submits and after the assignment is graded, the 30 Day clock will be reset.

If the student does not submit, the student will be withdrawn from the course and the course will be entered as Incomplete.
