  • The School Model Change request form will be distributed to families and remain open, from February 1 to Feb 8. 
  • Families will be informed of any changes to their child’s class placement or program model, as well as the date it begins
  • Staff will continue to work diligently to ensure successful transitions for students changing models. 
  • We cannot guarantee that there will not be an increase in combined grades or a change to the number of students in classes in some schools. 
  • Due to the complexity of the pending reorganization and staffing, a child may be assigned a new teacher.
  • Regardless of the model chosen, YRDSB is committed to ensuring that the learning experience for students will be both safe and engaging.
