Ontario high schools allowed returning to regular semesters in February: Lecce

ONTARIO: In a wide-ranging announcement, Ontario’s government announced it will allow high schools to shift back to regular semesters come February.

Education Minister Stephen Lecce made the announcement alongside Health Minister Christine Elliott and Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Kieran Moore.

Government officials say school boards can make the change sooner if they have their local public health unit’s support.

Numerous school boards have requested the move away from “modified semesters,” which saw students take four courses each term, alternating which two classes they had each week.

The system allows for easier cohorting, but students and parents have complained that the three-hour classes make it hard to absorb and retain information.

Thursday’s announcement immediately got a stamp of approval from the Ontario Public School Boards Association.
