Toronto Is Rejecting Students From Virtual Learning Classes 3 Weeks After The Second Wave
Students will no longer get the opportunity to switch to online learning this semester.
The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) has announced that all elementary students who are currently attending classes in person, will have to continue to do so.
The move comes as a way to ensure that there is "stability in classrooms and schools."
Elementary school students at the Toronto District School Board will no longer be able to switch between in-person learning and virtual instruction before the end of 2020.
In a statement to Narcity, the TDSB revealed that students originally had three dates to switch between in-person and online learning.
However, students are now unable to move to virtual classes until the end of January 2021.
"There may be some unique circumstances that will be considered on a case by case basis," TDSB stated to Narcity.
The announcement comes only weeks after Doug Ford announced that Ontario was officially in its second wave of COVID-19.
Originally, the school board had some issues with its online platform. The start of the school year was delayed and there was a shortage of teachers.
