For the past 10 years, Blyth Academy high school students have followed a four-term, two course per term structure. When the Ontario Ministry of Education recommended this quadmester timetable as part of the re-opening plan for all Ontario schools, many semestered and non-semestered high schools across the province had to quickly adapt. School boards that usually operate on a traditional two-semester, four course model are now working feverishly to navigate faculty and students through a very different school year.
We are one week into back-to-school, and the nervous energy that first filled the hallways has quickly turned into excitement for a safe and successful school year.
Our campuses were well prepared for the return of students, with physical distancing and sanitary protocols in place across our 10 Ontario locations. Our signature small class sizes (with an average of ten students) as well as small school communities, have enabled our campuses to easily adapt to the safety protocols set out by the Ontario School Board.
