York Region District School Board (YRDSB) will be implementing a hybrid model of learning for elementary and secondary schools for the 2021-22 school year.

“Through feedback, we have heard from families that their priorities include students being connected to their home school, the ability to switch more readily when required between remote learning to in-person learning, and access to continuity of remote learning as needed,” said Louise Sirisko, director of education for YRDSB. “Through the hybrid model, families will continue to have the ability to opt for in-person or remote learning, and placement for all students will be in their home school.”   

Students attending face-to-face and students attending remotely will be taught simultaneously by the same educators. Where numbers warrant and when operationally feasible, in some schools, some classes may begin in a fully face or face or fully virtual format; all classes however have the potential of being hybrid. In secondary, we will be continuing with an adaptive model to be developed based on Ministry of Education directives and public health requirements.  

YRDSB will be reaching out to families during the summer to provide more information about the learning models and request for families to indicate a preference for face-to-face or remote learning for their children.
