Elementary Summer School


2021 Grade 6, 7 and 8 Summer School -

Registration is Closed

The York Region District School Board will once again be offering a Grade 6, 7 & 8 Summer School program. This 15-day program is designed to reinforce curriculum. Students must register in the program for their current school grade as this is not an acceleration program. For example, a grade 7 student would register for the grade 7 program as it reinforces grade 7 content.  

The following programs will be offered:

  • Language and Math reinforcement for students who may or may not have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) 

  • English Language Learner (ELL) Language for students who are ELL Stage 1 or 2 learners. The focus is on reading, writing and speaking.


The program will operate from July 5 to July 23, 2021 (8:45 am - 3:25 pm).  A typical day has Language and Numeracy instruction in the morning with Arts-based programming in the afternoon. There are two 15 minute breaks and a 40-minute lunch break during the day. 

Classes will be a mix of synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous learning. The teachers will be expected to be online for most of the day.  A majority of the day will be spent in synchronous learning experiences (google meets with whole class or small groups, phone or video chats, individual conferencing – a combination of many tools to engage in synchronous learning).   There will be asynchronous portions of the day as well, for example the teacher meeting with one small group, the rest of the class working on a task for 20 minutes, then they all come back together or the teacher checks in before going to the next group, etc. 

In July, before the start of classes, your child will receive an email with instructions on how to log on and participate in the class.
