May 27 and 28, 2015, will be review days in Peel District School Board secondary schools. Teachers will ensure students have the opportunity to re-engage in their courses. They will also adjust their course outlines and timelines to focus on overall expectations for each course.
During the secondary teachers’ strike, we communicated that students would not be required to continue working on class assignments or projects assigned prior to the job action. With this in mind, a one-week moratorium on collecting assignments or conducting assessments begins May 27. During this week, assignments will not be collected and assessments will not take place. Students who were working on independent study units (ISUs) prior to the beginning of the strike will have due dates extended into June.
Instruction in Peel classrooms will continue to June 24 and exams will not take place in any courses this semester. Instead, final grades will be based on 100 per cent of term work and zero per cent on final assessments. Days originally designated as exam days (June 17, 18, 19, 22 and 23) will be converted into instructional days where teachers and students will continue their regular class schedules. June 24 will be a tutorial day when teachers will be available for students who require extra help/support. June 25 and 26 remain Professional Activity Days focused on promotion meetings and school closure activities.
We understand the return to business as usual in schools will not be immediate. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
