TDSB turns to supply teachers for online classes as e-learning demand surges

Article content continued

TDSB postpones start of some online classes as e-learning demand surges

Canada’s largest school board is once again delaying the start of some of its virtual elementary classes as it tries to keep up with growing demand for online learning.

The Toronto District School Board says 60,000 elementary school students have now signed up for online classes amid rising COVID-19 case numbers, and it originally intended them all to begin their studies on Tuesday.

But the board now says it hasn’t been able to assign staff to all classes, meaning some students will have to wait to begin school until they have a teacher in place.

“We have around 500 teachers [that] still have to be hired so that we can have everyone up and running,” said TDSB spokesperson Ryan Bird. 

The TDSB says parents and students will have to log on to its online learning portal on Tuesday morning to find out if their lessons can get underway on schedule.
