Opt-Out Process for Online Learning Requirement
In February 2022, the Ministry of Education implemented an online learning graduation requirement for all students starting secondary school in the 2020-2021 school year (students currently in Grade 11 and younger). This graduation requirement requires all students to earn two full credits through online learning.
All HWDSB families have the option to opt out of the online learning requirement. Please log into the Parent Portal and complete the form titled ‘eLearning Opt Out for Families’. There is no expiration date or deadline to submit. Families should note that the form can only be submitted once in Parent Portal. If you need change your decision, please call the office at Glendale. Once families complete the form and submit it with all the required information, they will receive a notification that their submission has been received.
Recognizing the unique circumstances of instruction during the pandemic, the Ministry of Education is granting all students currently in Grade 11 with the equivalent of one full credit in recognition for the period of remote learning.
Further details regarding the online graduation requirement can be found at the following Ministry of Education website.
