Planning for September 2021: Updates
The Government of Ontario recently announced that school boards will provide In-Person and Virtual Learning options for the 2021-22 school year. With this in mind, the Toronto District School Board will be asking families to complete an online Selection Form for In-Person or Virtual Learning in mid-August.
In addition, the TDSB has informed parents/guardians that it will follow the direction of the Ministry of Education with regard to secondary schools:
“In secondary schools, school boards are to adopt secondary timetabling methods that emphasize cohorting of students as much as possible and to limit the number of student-to-student contacts. School boards will be required to limit schedules to two in-person classes (such as quadmestering) with exceptions for schools where contacts can be limited by cohorting grades or if the overall size of the school is small, making contact tracing manageable.”
