Mandatory eLearning Initiative

The Ministry of Education shared that students currently in grade 10 and below are subject to a new mandatory eLearning graduation requirement. Students who would like to opt-out of this requirement can do so using this form. Please note, current grade 10 students will receive one eLearning credit due to their experiences with pandemic learning, and current grade 11 and 12 students are exempted from the requirement and do not need to complete the opt-out form.
