The Upper Canada District School Board has released 3 possible scenarios and a survey for parents, all regarding the re-opening of schools in September.
Yesterday the UCDSB announced that the first day of school for kids k-12 will be Friday, September the 4th, and will have one of the following in place:
a regular school day routine with enhanced public health protocols
an “adapted” or modified school day routine based on smaller class sizes, cohorting, and an alternative day or week delivery
OR, Scenario 3:
distance / at-home learning with ongoing enhanced remote delivery
Through a series of tweets from the UCDSB meeting last night, the board announced it would in fact write to the minister of education advising that SCENARIO 1: A regular school day routine, with enhanced public health protocols, is “the only suitable option for their students.”
They would also request additional funding for any incremental costs in operating this program model.
