Summer School AnnouncementThe OCDSB is offering a variety of courses for students in grades 6,7, and 8

- The OCDSB is offering a reach-ahead course this summer that will be done online. The course that will be offered to students this summer is Geography of Canada —– Academic CGC1DT. This course is for students completing grade 8 in June and moving to grade 9 next fall.

It is important to mention that access to a device and the internet will be necessary as students will need to work at least 6-8 hours every weekday on their course. Students will need to be sure that they have access to a Chromebook (or another appropriate device - not just a cell phone) and enough access to the internet to meet daily requirements. Students must also be aware that this is a course that is being condensed into one month of learning and, as a result, it will be moving at a rapid pace. Normally, the content of this course is spread out over several months during a semester. Students enrolled in this course will need to attend to the daily work independently and diligently to ensure success.

Registration is open from Monday, May 4, 2020, to Friday, June 12, 2020.  If you believe your child meets the criteria outlined above, please contact our support staff to discuss enrollment - Tania Ovens (  or John Sainis ( 

- The OCDSB will also be offering some additional summer learning options for students in grades 6,7, and 8.  There will be a language arts course for English language learners, a language arts and math program designed to boost student's skills, and a get ready for grade 9 course that is offered to students currently in grade 8.

Registration for these courses will begin on the morning of May 14 and be open until June 12. Should you wish to register your child for one of these courses, please contact John Sainis - or Tania Ovens -
