Kudos to all the teachers at RCI - it has been such a crappy time to be a teacher and we know that you are doing the absolute best with the stuff that has been thrown at you all
Lynn B
43:02
Thankyou for all you do RCI teachers :)
Farrell, Lucy
43:28

Charlene Dunstan ( She/Her )
45:54
woot woot !
Lynn B
46:35
For students that have had multiple supply teachers in one class and are struggling to now keep up with the content and are worried about their marks - what do you suggest they do? How/who should they speak too?
Theresa’s iPad
51:15
I agree that the administration at RCI is fantastic! They get back to you with answers right away which is especially helpful trying to navigate for the first time at a new school.
Jennifer Cumming
52:02

Meredith Martin
01:07:12
My kid has had 5 English teachers and 3 science teachers and they have not communicated well.
Lynn B
01:09:28
So should students speak to the subject head if there is an issue with multiple supplies? This is gr 11 math.
Scarlett Farquhar
01:09:50
Do you have staff to sanitizer the lockers in between uses (that seems like a LOT of work for the caretakers)
Charlene Dunstan ( She/Her )
01:11:56
I have my kids tdsb email accounts attached to my gmail account so I can know what is coming up.
Charlotte McCloskey
01:20:16
Will there be any change in class schedules for semester one (i.e. like York region)? Will RCI return to “normal” semestered weekly classes for semester two?
Meredith Martin
01:23:47

Theresa’s iPad
01:23:51
Is it possible to have the upcoming parent council meetings posted on the school website? Last year’s meetings are still up. Also, are they monthly meetings?

I think RCI does an amazing job given all that is going on. Big respect for teachers and staff!
Meredith Martin
01:25:29
regarding winter, will there be options to eat lunch inside?
Charlene Dunstan ( She/Her )
01:26:02
Dual credit, is it solely for students who are stuggling or is there room for other students who may want to explore a course of study for post secondary ?
Theresa’s iPad
01:27:13
Maybe these results could be emailed to parents if anonymous
Meredith Martin
01:30:35
thanks for answering my questions! :)
Crystal
01:31:45
What is a "regular semester schedule"?
Charlotte McCloskey
01:34:35
Agreed, our kids have suffered from so much change. Let’s leave it for semester one and hope for a “normal” semester two. Thanks for the response!
Scarlett Farquhar
01:35:34
Ken, you lost your sound
Saba Ferdinands (She/Her)
01:35:38
really hope we go to a normal semester next year, quad format is exhausting and not effective for learning/retention
Charlene Dunstan ( She/Her )

Thank you to everyone at RCI for all that you do for our kids.
Scarlett Farquhar
01:47:18
Can you speak about the OSSLT (for grade 11's) and if students are not successful in achieving a passing grade (especially those with IEP's), what would next steps be?
Farrell, Lucy
01:49:34
Any grade 11 student who is not successful this time, will have another opportunity to write the OSSLT in the spring. There will be opportunities for after school sessions to prepare students once again in the spring. If a student is not successful again in the spring, then they will take the Grade 12 Literacy Course (OLC).
Saba Ferdinands (She/Her)
01:49:35
