Registration for 2021-22 UGDSB Secondary Remote Learning runs August 3-12, 2021

For Immediate Release
August 3, 2021

The Upper Grand District School Board is looking forward to welcoming students back in September 2021. 

The UGDSB will offer a remote learning option for students in the 2021-22 school year. Please note that the UGDSB remote learning program for the 2021-22 school year will NOT be a “hybrid model.” Remote learning classes will be staffed by dedicated remote learning teachers.

Please see below for information about 2021-22 Secondary Remote Learning and to register for remote learning.

Secondary In-Person Learning

In-person learning for Grade 9-12+ students in 2021-22 will include the following: 

Secondary Remote Learning Information

While we believe that in-person learning best supports students, we recognize that some families may want their child to learn remotely, due to their unique circumstances.

Families should be aware that there will be some differences in the remote learning program in 2021-22 compared to what we were able to offer in the 2020-21 school year. For instance, with more students expected to return to in-person learning, the board’s ability to offer a similar breadth of remote programs as was offered during the 2020-2021 school may be limited. Additionally, the decision families make about remote learning vs in-person learning for 2021-22 will be for the entire high school semester, as movement between learning modes can cause disruptions for many students and classrooms.

IMPORTANT: Secondary students and families are asked to review the information posted on the UGDSB website for details about the 2021-22 Secondary Remote program, as well as information on the availability of French Immersion programming and Specialized Class Placements for next year:
