Students won’t go back to school on May 4, Premier Doug Ford says

Ontario students won’t be returning to the classroom on May 4, Premier Doug Ford announced today. 

The closure of publicly funded school will be extended into the month of May as the province extend the Declaration of Emergency until May 12, 2020. 

But this does not mean the remainder of the school year has been cancelled, Premier Ford said. 

But Premier Ford said Tuesday school closures will have to be extended under the advice of the province’s chief health officer. More details will be provided in the coming days.

An e-learning plan is currently in place for students with set standards for different grade levels, ranging from five hours of work per week for Kindergarten to Grade 6 students and 10 hours of work per week for students in Grades 7 and 8.

Education minister Stephen Lecce said the plan will also require final report cards for all students and prioritize keeping them on track to graduate.
