​Reopening Our Schools

- parent / guardian survey -

The Minister of Education has mandated that all boards of education in Ontario prepare for the reopening of school in September 2020.

The GECDSB invites the participation of parents / guardians in the development of the return to school plan with a brief survey: Reopening Our Schools Survey

​The guiding principles of our school reopening planning include:

  • Addressing safety concerns for our students, staff and families – mitigating risks;
  • Maximizing student-teacher (face-to-face) learning opportunities;
  • Planning for an effective transition to Regular Classroom Instruction (full time schooling) or Remote Learning (at-home) models as may be necessary;
  • Providing consistency, when possible, for students and families in scheduling;
  • Guiding our planning by the 'COVID-19: Recommendations for School Reopening' (Sick Kids - June 2020) and the Ministry of Education's 'Approach to Reopening Schools for the 2020-2021 School Year' documents.

Since its initial posting more than 3000 families have responded with their ideas, comments and suggestions. The survey will remain open until July 8th.
