COVID-19 and School Closures
All Ontario publicly funded schools—including Peel District School Board schools and worksites—are currently closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, to help limit the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).
Despite this closure, it is important to us that learning continues. Since April 6, 2020, the Peel board has engaged all students in a new way of learning, led remotely by Peel board educators.
Our Learning and Support Plan Frequently Asked Questions
Our Learning and Support Plan for Students
To help guide our work during the school closure, the Peel board has developedA Community of Care: Peel District School Board's Learning and Support Plan
, in consultation with administrators, educators, and union and federation partners. This document is aligned with the Ministry of Education’s Learn at Home
strategy, and outlines how Peel board educators will provide lessons to students remotely to help prepare them for the next step in their education journey. This plan will continue to be updated as we explore this new method of learning.
