Edusity’s SOAR Courses Will Still Fly
SOAR may have been canceled this year, but the Edusity courses will still fly. SOAR, a program for Peel District Public School Board students in grades 7 and 8 was to be held on May 29.
The goal of the program was to help ease the transition from elementary to secondary school. Due to unforeseeable circumstances, the program was cancelled yesterday. Edusity, a virtual classroom and online education portal, will continue to offer the 5 five free courses it created for program participants.
SOAR Participants can choose three of the five self-study courses by applying the coupon code SOAR2021 on the course pages and clicking apply. Students will then click enroll now and create a student account to begin the courses they choose.
