Online learning in Nova Scotia is going to continue until June 5. That will be the end of the school year as announced this afternoon by Premier Stephen McNeil.
Any student who is on track to graduate, will graduate. Any student who is on track to move to the next grade, will pass.
The goal is for daycares in the province to open June 8. Chief Medical Officer of Nova Scotia, Doctor Strang, said it is essential to have daycares functioning in order to restart business.
Previously, Minister of Education, Zach Churchill, stated that high school students’ work will still be assessed and these students would receive grades on their final report cards. This will give them proper credit to go onto the next grade or for senior students, post-secondary education.
Students from grades primary to nine will receive grades for work completed before schools shut down in March. Teachers will comment on their progress through the rest of the term.
Senior students will still get to celebrate graduation in some form when COVID-19 dissipates.
This is a developing story, more to come.
