Update regarding elementary online and in-person enrolments

Update regarding elementary online and in-person enrolments

​​Families recently had the opportunity to switch learning models from in-person/adaptive learning to online, and vice-versa, by contacting their school before Oct. 14 at noon. Now that this deadline has passed, we have a better understanding of the new enrolments and current needs of our school system. ​​

​Dear Peel District School Board families,

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, so have the needs of families and our schools. As we navigate this new education landscape, our skilled and caring staff continue to do an incredible job each day for students under what we know are difficult circumstances. 

Now more than ever, our plans need to be adaptive and incorporate families' lived experiences, to create the best learning opportunities for students amidst these uncertain times. As you know, families recently had the opportunity to switch learning models from in-person/adaptive learning to online, and vice-versa, by contacting their school before Oct. 14 at noon. Now that this deadline has passed, we have a better understanding of the new enrolments and current needs of our school system. ​

Based on current data, approximately 56.8% of elementary students will be learning online (a 7% increase in online learning) as of Nov. 18. About 2% of students in K-8 will move from online to the in-person learning. 

This means some elementary schools will need to undergo a re-organization to accommodate for changes in class sizes and staffing. However, thanks to adjustments made earlier this school year to our elementary online learning model, we will be able to accommodate this new shift in enrolment without any changes to the way elementary classes are taught online or in-person. Principals will communicate to families and staff directly if their school requires re-organization.

For secondary students, there is a significant enrolment shift to online​. To learn about changes to the secondary learning model, visit our board website. 

In these unprecedented times, thank you for your patience, support and understanding as we strive to provide learning opportunities that best meet the needs of our school communities.​
