The TDSB will bring back the “quadrimester” model for high school students next year – fr


TORONTO – The Toronto District School Board will be bringing back the “term” model for high school students in the 2021-2022 school year.

The TDSB confirmed the decision in a note sent to parents on Wednesday, citing the need to provide a schedule that “meets both planned public health measures and student needs.”

Under the “term” model, which was first introduced this year, students take two courses at a time in four separate academic semesters. It replaced a two-semester system where students were typically enrolled in four classes at a time.

“This model will provide students with certainty for the start of the year and allow a common entry point for all students, especially those who may be transferring between schools or starting high school for the first time,” said the TDSB in the note to parents. . “We must, of course, remain flexible and nimble, and we must continue to follow the guidelines given by the Toronto Department of Education and Public Health. If anything changes, we’ll continue to keep you informed. “

The TDSB said the decision to continue with the “quadrimester” model is based on “a recent directive from the Department of Education”.

News on the plan for the fall comes following the ministry’s announcement that all school boards will have to offer a distance learning option for the next school year, whether the pandemic has subsided enough to allow for the resume classes to anyone.

The proposed schedule for secondary schools next year is as follows:

  • Quad (Sept. To mid-November where students take two courses at the same time)
  • Quad (mid-November to January where students take two courses at the same time)
  • Quad (February to mid-April where students take two courses at the same time)
  • Quad (mid-April to June where students take two courses at the same time)
