Return to School Family Survey

Dear Families,

The Ministry of Education has instructed Ontario school boards to prepare for the 2020/2021 academic school year by developing plans to support the following scenarios:

  1. Normal school day routine with enhanced public health protocols – Students going to school every day, in classes that reflect standard class size regulations.
  2. Modified school day routine – Based on public health advice, an adapted delivery model to allow for physical distancing and cohorts of students. Under this model, a limit of 15 students would be maintained in a typical classroom at one time.
  3. At-home learning – Should the school closure be extended, or some parents choose not to send their child back to school, remote education will be available. 

The York Region District School Board (YRDSB) would like your feedback, which will be used alongside recommendations from our Public Health Agencies, the Ministry of Education, and Regional and Provincial agencies to inform learning plans for the 2020/2021 academic year.

This survey is voluntary and anonymous. No information you provide will identify you or your children. Please skip any questions you do not want to answer.

If you experience any technical difficulties in completing the survey, please contact the Research Department by sending an email to
