LDSB Virtual School

Limestone Learning Foundation
The Limestone District School Board will offer a Virtual School option for September 2021 for students who learn best in the online environment, or require a virtual environment due to underlying medical conditions for themselves or their family members. Registration for 2021-2022 Virtual School was finalized in June and registration is now closed.

Given that there is no new government funding, at this time, to support virtual schools for the 2021-2022 school year, program options for LDSB Virtual Schools will look different.
  • Elementary (K to Grade 8): Students entering Kindergarten to Grade 8 who opt for Virtual School, will be provided with a combination of whole class instruction, guided instruction, individual support and “office hours” for each full-time assignment. Core French programming will be available to students in Grades 4 to 8 only. Due to staffing constraints, Choices at 7 programs and French Immersion programming will only be offered at in-person school. The LDSB Elementary Virtual School will operate from 9 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. daily.
  • Secondary (Grades 9-12): Students in Grades 9 to 12 will return to a two-semester model with four courses per semester unless public health restrictions require a different model such as a quadmester or octomester. Like in-person school, course demand will determine which courses run. Courses that rely on hands-on experiences, including International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, Specialist High Skills Major, co-operative education, technology, art, and physical and health education will only be offered in-person. The LDSB Secondary Virtual School will operate on a typical school timetable, from 8:30 am to 2:35 p.m. daily.
