School coming back in September—but what will it look like?

 The Ontario government is looking at three different ways for how schools will operate in September, but if there is live teaching there won’t be more than 15 students in the classroom and students would likely have the same teacher all day.

Education Minister Stephen Lecce presented three possible options for schools reopening in September and said that it will be up to each school board to decide what’s best for their region, in consultation with medical and government officials. Students will either return to in-person instruction while adhering to public health measures, continue using remote learning strengthened by live instruction, or take part in a blending of the first two options that will see students attend school on alternative days or weeks.

Lecce then went on to say that in September, while school boards will have plans in place for all three scenarios, he expects Ontario students “will enter into a cautious adaptive delivery model” where classrooms will have no more than 15 students.

“Should Ontario continue to flatten the curve and continue to make gains we will allow school board to move closer to a conventional classroom experience, with stringent health and safety protocols in place,” Lecce said.

The Ford government will give school boards $25.5 billion during the 2020-2021 school year, an increase of $736 million compared to the previous school year, to pay for education staff, textbooks, learning materials, technology and other classroom supplies.
