The Provincial government said their Learn at Home plan would begin on Monday. However, Waterloo Region District School Board is indicating that they will not meet that goal. 

In a statement released on Friday, WRDSB said they spent the week connecting with students and families and made sure they got comfortable with a distance learning website. 

They added it is a challenge to move from a classroom setting to remote learning in such a short time period and they are continuously working to ensure that students have fair opportunities to learn from home.

WRDSB's plan for next week is that all educators will begin to prepare students and their families for distance learning, identify student barriers and make sure teachers are ready. 

In the statement, they said they are exploring solutions for students in need of a device. 

"It is stressful times for students preparing to graduate. The board recognizes this and said students will hear from their teachers and guidance counsellors who will provide an idea of what distance learning will look like for them in their graduating year."

They reiterated the Minister of Education will be getting rid of the requirement for graduating students to have completed their 40 hours of community service and the Grade 10 literacy test.
