What does a modified semester look like?

During the school year, all TDSB secondary schools will be following a modified semester. The school year calendar and daily schedule has now been finalized. Students will take four courses, two each during alternating weeks. They will continue to be cohorted but will now be part of four cohorts (one for each class). Learn more about modified semesters here.

Will there be a hybrid (i.e. simultaneous) model?

In secondary, there will be in-person classes, dedicated virtual learning classes, and classrooms with simultaneous learning (educators teaching lessons for both in-person and virtual students at the same time) to maintain students’ access to programming and connection to school communities.

What is the cohorting for high school?

The Ministry guidance provides the opportunity for two classes (i.e. cohorts) per day.  TDSB will follow a modified semester with alternating weeks, where students will take two courses in the first week and two other courses in the second week.
