Policy 520 Continuity of Learning

Policy Statement

The Upper Grand District School Board (UGDSB) is committed to the continuity of learning for all students when schools and/or classes are closed to in-person learning. In the event of a class or school closure, students and parents/guardians must be provided with opportunities to maintain learning pathways which may include a combination of synchronous and/or asynchronous activities based on the Ontario curriculum. Expectations for educators and students during short-term closures will vary depending on individual circumstances and the nature of the closure.

As the UGDSB operates with a fundamental principle that every student should have equitable access and opportunity to succeed personally and academically, the needs of all students and staff must be considered when creating a plan for continuity of learning. This plan will help to ensure everyone in the school community is prepared when a switch to alternate forms of teaching and learning is initiated.
