Request to Change Learning Environment

The online form will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, December 7, 2020.

If you wish to change your child’s learning environment by switching from remote learning to in-class instruction, or vice versa, you are asked to complete an online request form.

Important notes before you complete the online form: 

  • You are asked to submit a separate form for each child
  • You will need your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) to submit this request. The OEN can be found on a recent report card. 
  • This online request form applies to elementary students ONLY. Requests for changes in the learning environment at the secondary school level should be sent to directly to your child’s secondary school Principal. 
  • This form does not apply to homeschooling. If your child is currently being homeschooled and you would like to request a change to either in-class instruction or remote learning, please contact your Family of Schools Superintendent. 

NOTE: Please do not complete this form unless you want to change your child’s current learning environment – i.e. your child is currently attending in-class instruction and you want to switch to remote (online) learning in a virtual classroom. 

The online form will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, December 7, 2020.


Next Steps

Once the online form has closed, our staff will begin to work through the rescheduling process. 

  • Parents and guardians will receive confirmation of the changes to their children’s learning environment by Friday, December 18, 2020.
  • The changes to your child’s learning environment will come into effect as of Monday, January 11, 2021.
