Ministry of Education Update for eLearning
On February 1, 2022 the Ministry of Education issued the Policy and Procedures Memorandum (PPM 167) regarding the Online learning graduation requirement.
Beginning with the cohort of students who entered Grade 9 in the 2020-21 school year, all students must earn a minimum of two online learning credits as part of the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma unless they have been opted out or exempted in accordance with the processes described in the memorandum (PPM167).
Adult learners entering the Ontario secondary school system in 2023-24 or later will also be required to meet this graduation requirement unless they opt themselves out of the requirement in accordance with the processes described in this memorandum.
