Prospective Grade 8 Students and Parents

The TDSB is offering a Summer Reach-Ahead Opportunity for Grade 8 Students

Current TDSB Grade 8 students are eligible to register for either 1) the TDSB Continuing Education, Hybrid or Remote Secondary Full Credit Summer Reach-Ahead course, GLD2O1, or 2) the fully online, e-Summer Full Credit Summer Reach Ahead course, GLD2OE. While secondary schools do NOT have a role in registering grade 8 students for the summer program, we did want to help spread the word about this opportunity.

Program Options:

Option 1: Hybrid and Remote, Continuing Education, Secondary Credit- GLD2O1

Should an announcement be made that only remote learning can take place, hybrid students need to be prepared to pivot to remote learning.

Session: One session in July through Continuing Education

When: July 5th - 30th, 2021

Time: 9:00 a.m. - 3:15 p.m. (Note: Attendance is mandatory daily)


Option 2: e-Summer Secondary Credit - GLD2OE

Sessions: July and August

When: July 5 - July 29, 19 days or  August 3 - 27, 19 days

Time: This Grade 9 Reach Ahead course, GLD2OE, is being offered through e-Learning in both July and August. The course is delivered daily through a flexible schedule that includes both synchronous and asynchronous learning. The teacher will establish synchronous class times with their students. Students should plan to allocate about six hours daily to this course.

Mandatory Online Credit: Successful completion of GLD2OE through only e-Summer (not through Continuing Education) will count towards the student’s mandatory e-Learning credits.


Please note:

  • Space is limited, and the course may fill up prior to the close of registration.
  • Continuing Education students are responsible for providing their own learning materials, including laptops/internet access as these are not provided by Continuing Education.
  • Grade 8 students are not eligible to enrol into any other Secondary Credit or eSummer courses.
  • Grade 8 students interested in the reach ahead summer programming in one of these formats whould communicate their interest to their elementary school.

Last year's yearbooks are ready for pickup to our current grade 10 to 12 students.  All students, whether virtual or bricks and mortar are to fill out the following google form: to choose a date and time for pick up.  Please note that you will need to sign in with your TDSB account.  The dates will be from March 29th till April 9th in the afternoons.  There are only 10 slots for each half hour.  This is to discourage the clustering of friends within the 2m requirement and touching each other's yearbooks and writing instruments.  


Diplomas and awards can be picked up in the afternoons (1pm till 3:30pm) from April 19th.
