ONTARIO – More local students than usual will be going to school this summer, taking advantage of expanded programs that districts are offering to help students catch up from a rough year of schooling.

School districts are getting unprecedented funding for the expanded teaching - done largely face-to-face with Covid limits still in place.

The grants from the state represent 75% of the Summer Learning Programs’ funding, with 25% then being matched by local school districts. The amounts the districts will receive from the state are displayed in the table below.
