Grade 6, 7 and 8 Summer School

​​To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Continuing Education Services is adjusting its Summer Learning program offerings to align with public health guidelines. Please be advised that our traditional in class face-to-face summer programs will move to a remote learning delivery model as per Ministry direction​.  We will continue to follow Ministry direction and if there are any changes to our program delivery model we will communicate those changes to the system.  

As these are unprecedented times, we encourage staff and students to continue to monitor our Board’s website and monitor the Board’s Twitter account @YRDSB​ as updated information will be posted in those forums.

The York Region District School Board will once again be offering a Grade 6, 7 & 8 Summer School program. The program will operate from July 2 to July 24, 2020 (8:45 am to 3:25 pm). There are two 15 minutes breaks and a 40 minute lunch break every day.
This 17 non-credit day program is designed to reinforce curriculum. Students must register in the program for their current school grade as this is not an acceleration program. For example, a grade 7 student would register for the grade 7 program as it reinforces grade 7 content.  
Classes will be a mix of synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous learning.  Before the start of classes, your child will received an email with instructions on how to log on and participate in the class.

The following programs will ​be offered:

  • ​Language and Math reinforcement for students who do not have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or an English Language Learner (ELL) designation.
  • Language and Math reinforcement for students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP).
  • English Language Learner (ELL) Language for students who are ELL Stage 1 or 2 learners. The focus is on reading, writing and speaking.

Face-to-face summer programs will move to a remote learning delivery model as per Ministry direction. Please ​note, due to the registration process, students are attached to one of the following locations:

  • Bayview S.S. (Richmond Hill)
  • Bur Oak S.S. (Markham)
  • Emily Carr S.S. (Woodbridge)
  • Keswick H.S. (Keswick)
