- choosing learning models for the 2020-21 school year –

Seventy-six (76) percent of secondary students will return to school in an adapted, in-person learning program when school resumes in September. They will be taking courses equally in both the classroom and at home. The remaining 24% of secondary students will have their classes entirely on line.

Sixty-five (65) percent of students in GECDSB elementary schools will attend classes, in person, 5 days each week. Twenty-three (23) percent of students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 will be learning on line with 12% of elementary students using the off-line, printed packages at home.

Families of all GECDSB students were asked to complete the Attendance Confirmation Survey between Aug. 12 and 21st. This is required to assist the board in planning and staffing for the start of the school year.

Approximately 36,000 students are enrolled at GECDSB schools – 24,594 (elementary) 11,720 (secondary).
