What continued closure of schools means: DDSB

In a message to families of students, Durham District School Board (DDSB) yesterday clarified what the continued closure of schools for the current academic year means.

  • Schools will remain closed to in-person learning for the rest of this school year and students will continue to learn remotely.
  • Students currently learning in-person as part of a special education class will continue to do so.
  • We are planning for full-day in-person learning for secondary students choosing to learn in-person for the 2021-22 school year.
  • We will be providing families with a one-week window in early-August to confirm their choice of in-person or virtual learning for the 2021-22 school year.
  • Secondary school bell times will be from 10am to 4pm for all students.
  • Secondary schools will be operating on a quadmester schedule with students taking two courses at a time for approximately 45 school days per quadmester.
  • Timetables will be provided to students closer to the start of the school year.
  • OSSLT is not required for students graduating this (2020-21) and next (2021-22) school year.
  • The requirement to earn 40 community involvement hours has been reduced to 20 hours for this (2020-21) and next (2021-22) school year.
