Mandatory eLearning Graduation Requirement and Opt-out Information
Beginning with the cohort of students who entered Grade 9 in 2020-21 (current Grade 10 students), all students must earn a minimum of two e-learning credits in order to graduate with an OSSD. Students in certificate pathways are exempted from this requirement. Students who were in Grade 9 in 2020-21 will receive one e-learning credit in recognition of their pandemic learning experiences.
Students who would like to opt-out of this requirement can do so using this form. Please note, current grade 10 students will receive one eLearning credit due to their experiences with pandemic learning, and current grade 11 and 12 students are exempted from the requirement and do not need to complete the opt-out form. Frequently asked questions about the mandatory eLearning requirement and the opt-out process are available on the OCDSB website.
