We're calling for the OCDSB to freeze Semester 1 grades. For public and mental health.
Recently, the TDSB, WRDSB and others implemented a mark freeze for all evaluations from December 17th to the end of the semester, such that marks can increase but not decrease. We believe that the OCDSB needs to implement this same measure of “freezing marks” for the sake of its constituents and of public health.
Therefore, we are calling on the OCDSB to implement an identical mark freezing policy.
Why? Absenteeism. This is especially prominent in more COVID-vulnerable communities.
Online learning disproportionately affected those who might have learning disabilities or need IEPs
More COVID-19 cases means that there is a higher likely hood of staff shortages.
More uncertainties to come and further wreck to our learning quality
