The ministry is asking for one survey to be completed for each child a household individually.

While parents are taking advantage of the free online Summer Learning Program 2020, it’s still not clear how their children’s education will look like come September.

Due to the pandemic, the next school year will likely be a hybrid of online combined with some in-class instruction, said Education Minister Rob Fleming last month when limited in-class instruction resumed. He noted the resumption would enable staff to fine tune how it could work this September.

In his recent year-end message to parents, district superintendent Doug Sheppard acknowledged, “Although we don’t yet know what our return to school in September will look like as it will depend on the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in BC at that time, I am confident that we will achieve whatever is required of us. Already, we have shown that together we can be flexible and successful in planning for different scenarios and changing our approach to instruction and student learning quickly. Although the current uncertainty we are facing is not ideal, whatever September brings, I know we will again work together to support our students and their families in the best way possible.”
