“The Ministry of Education continues to work with public health to determine best how to proceed for next year, so at this time, no final decision has been made,” said board spokesperson Sharlene Hunter.
This year, high school students who chose in-person schooling are only attending classes at schools about half the time and work online at home for the remainder of the time.
All Ontario elementary and secondary students this year also had the choice of studying full-time at home online.
The option to study online full-time will remain in 2021-22 at the Ottawa Catholic School Board, which will set up three permanent virtual schools with their own administration team and names.
Parents were asked to decide by Feb. 25 whether they wanted their child to study virtually next year. Any students who had not signed up for the virtual school by then were to be automatically enrolled at their bricks-and-mortar school.
