Impact of Staff Shortages on Schools
Impact of Staff Shortages on Schools
Posted on 04/05/2022

As we have previously shared, school boards across the province have been impacted by staffing shortages since the start of the pandemic. Although the UCDSB has a robust list of supply teachers and support staff, some schools are finding it increasingly difficult to replace absent staff, for reasons related to COVID-19.

We want to remind families that there may be times when school routines and daily schedules may need to be adjusted. In extreme cases, a class may need to move to remote learning for a couple of days on short notice if we do not have enough staff to supervise classes.

Moving a class to remote learning will always be a last resort, and notification may happen the night before or even the morning of. Should your child’s class be impacted by a short-term shift to remote learning, your school will contact families directly via email and post to your school’s Facebook page.

Student safety is, and always will be, our top priority and we must ensure that we have proper supervision for students while they are at school.
