Government of Ontario
- The Government of Ontario released its plan for the resumption of the 2020-21 school year. The plan consists of three scenarios, depending on the local public health situation:
- Normal school day with enhanced public health protocols – Students going to school every day, in classes that reflect standard class size regulations.
- Modified school day – A limit of 15 students per classroom; adopting a timetable to ensure students remain in contact only with their classmates and a single teacher. This model would require alternate day or alternate week delivery to a segment of the class at one time.
- At home learning – Should the school closure be extended, or parents choose not to send their child back to school, remote education will be offered.
- School boards should prepare a plan that includes alternate day or week attendance, staggered bell times and recess and different transportation arrangements among other considerations.
- The Government of Ontario is investing $736 million more in public education for the 2020-21 school year, increasing the total to more than $25.5 billion. This funding represents the largest investment in public education in Ontario’s history.
Government of Canada
- The Federal Government is creating 500 new green internships for young people in the energy, forestry, mining, earth sciences and clean technology sectors. The internships will be from 6 months up to a year.
