Alberta Education Minister Adriana LaGrange will announce the fall re-entry plan for schools at a 3:30 p.m. press conference this afternoon.
Schools have been closed since March 16 and students have been accessing education online from home.
In mid-May, Alberta Education said that no decisions had been made yet about how education will be provided in September.
The province was looking at three scenarios: normal school operations; partially reopening schools with some restrictions; and continuing at-home learning.
On Tuesday, Premier Jason Kenney announced that Alberta’s Stage 2 relaunch has been moved up to Friday, instead of June 19.
Stage 2 includes the opening of schools for requested diploma exams and summer school, following guidance.
Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Deena Hinshaw will be with LaGrange when the re-entry plan for the 2020-21 school year is announced.
