The Toronto District School Board says students will be able to switch between in-person and virtual learning at various points throughout the school year.
Parents have until Saturday to register their child for either in class or on-line learning for the start of the year,but in its updated back to school plan posted online, the TDSB says at both the elementary and secondary level, there will be three opportunities throughout the year to switch.
