The Public School Board is planning for a return to in-person learning for all students, K to 12 in September, and as directed by the Ministry of Education, they will provide a remote learning option for families for the 2021-2022 school year.

All elementary and secondary students have been enrolled for in-person learning for September 2021. From July 28th to August 6th families will have the opportunity to opt-out of in-person learning.

An opt-out form will be distributed to families through email and will be shared on www.publicboard.ca.

Elementary Remote Learning Model:

  • Elementary students who choose to opt-out of in-person learning for 2021-2022 will be timetabled in the GEC Elementary Virtual School and will follow a timetable similar to the 2020-2021 school year.
  • Students who enroll in the Virtual School must commit to do so for an entire term.
  • Students who opt out of in-person learning for Term 1 (September 7tg, 2021 to January 28th, 2022) will have an opportunity to return to in-person learning for Term 2 (January 31st, 2022 to June 2th9, 2022).
  • In-person learners will not have the option to switch to virtual learning in Term 2.

Secondary Remote Learning Model:

  • The September 2021 remote learning model for secondary students will be determined based on the number of students who opt-out of in-person learning.
  • Remote learning may include a Hybrid Model, a Virtual School, e-Learning, or courses that are available at the alternative secondary school.
  • Students who opt-out of in-person learning may be placed in any one of these alternatives.
  • In-person learners will not have the option to switch to remote learning in semester 2.
