All school boards should be treated the same. Doug Ford should move quickly to ensure equitable access to Education Development Charges. #onted #onpoli https://t.co/ZK4VgzGuue

@CP24 Blame @Sflecce for this shit show - the @TDSB came to him with a viable plan in August and he turned it down. #UnsafeSeptemberON #FireLecce



@juliabburke @MsMolly_TDSB @danjlevy @TheEmmys 🎼 “drove my Chevy to D. Levy but D. Levy was dry... 🎶 just how my brain works when I see word associations.





@tdsb This all is a joke I have two students grade 9 &10 that are still not online, no one has yet to contact me back to reset passwords, a teacher contacted me for my grade 9 student that has an IEP but they put her in Applied geography class of 34 students.



@tdsb Granddaughter, her mother and I have tried and tried to get in touch with someone to reset her password, TDSB, IT Suport, School...four days later - nothing??? @fordnation for kids choosing online why are they not all set up a week into it? #TDSBVirtualschool #TDSB





@tdsb @MsMolly_TDSB @danjlevy @TheEmmys I loved watching him jump for joy as he and his cast mates won their emmys!



TDSB aims to have teachers for all virtual students by mid-to-late next week https://t.co/7u1A690Rxe



@tdsb Use the teachers you already have teaching in regular school. Not teaching for the full day? I am sure teachers will take the extra money just fine. Virtual learning centres? No one told me my kids were no longer part of Shaughnessy School anymore. Stupidity at the highest level





@lisacurran1 @tdsb @Sflecce I think you can switch at certain points so that’s good news! I completely agree that if your kids try virtual and don’t like it, they should be able to switch. Hopefully the boards can apply what they’ve learned here about the logistical importance of a firm deadline next time.



I so need a hobby right now that does not involve refreshing the TDSB Virtual School platform every 15 minutes to see if there is a class for my child .... #onted #OntEdOnline #TDSBVirtualschool





@brittanystackzz @tdsb I'm sorry that you are having to go thru this frustration. VS just started on Tue so you aren't too far behind...once you get in, you will get caught up and have an amazing year.





The Premiers are rolling the dice with the lives of our children and they seem to be losing. #onpoli #onted #pcpo #ondp #tdsb #tcdsb #cdnpoli https://t.co/XlHWxt3vGw





@tdsb @DGBassani @shelleylaskin No courses, no teachers, no plan on what to do. No Nothing.





@OhHeyMissDee @tdsb @Sflecce I’m fine(ish) with this argument as long as when I want to switch either way they are a-ok with me missing deadlines! I have a very valid reason for missing it. No way to assess if remote is working for kid without actually trying it.



@ChristopherJO_Y @lisacurran1 @tdsb @Sflecce I think the issue is that some families are really scared about remaining in schools once there are COVID cases in the building and they feel that online is safer. Can’t blame them 🤷🏽‍♀️ Most in class teachers are accommodating by providing online work for them anyway.



We didn’t even get e-mail! @tdsb why we are getting this news from Twitter? Do you speak to media before speaking to parents? #whatamess https://t.co/sORdmNWN1N



@dpaolone_TDSB Thanks for sharing! Seeing so many different strategies being used in #TDSBVirtualschool to engage learners.



@lisacurran1 @tdsb @Sflecce I’ve been empathetic and sensitive to your frustrations since the beginning of this conversation. I’m just trying to extend that empathy to the people at @tdsb and other boards who are working very hard to support families. I hope your children get an excellent teacher soon!



@mrcappelmusic @TDSB_DLL @D2L @GoogleForEdu It's not about attaching a doc, rather the mechanics of assigning and collecting work.



@goodshipmonster @tdsb @fordnation Well let me know if I can help. Ppl reached out to me today offer help. You can email me. My full name @ me dot com



@OhHeyMissDee @tdsb @Sflecce Well your comments as a teacher on an issue SPECIFIC to parents of virtual learners show me that you don’t understand what we are going through and should maybe listen/reflect or just not comment. @sflecce is the root problem but @tdsb still botched virtual start



@brittanystackzz @tdsb Do you mean that you HAVE been able to access Brightspace? Your courses should be there.



@HPE_TDSB @tdsb The one on the left looks interesting. As long as each student only touches their own. Will @tdsb buy this system for every school? In the picture on the right, it looks like the masks are crumpled up. Masks need to be folded carefully according to SickKids.



@OhHeyMissDee @lisacurran1 @tdsb @Sflecce If you miss the deadline you wait for the next date - simple. One is not being denied an education - you simply have to wait your turn and stay in class for the time being.



@manonjgardner @tdsb has gone silent, your Twitter feed is blocked. Any chance you’d jump on a call with me?



@yuki_1558 @tdsb According to friends in Peel their virtual school started on time as well and Peel has about 60k virtual students



@DBischof1 @JoceMc @tdsb @NYGH_News My 7 year old had an upset stomach on Monday afternoon. Has been fine since Monday night but we are still waiting for his test result so he can go back to school.



@njaved i should add that my own limited experience has been with the TDSB. so, i appreciate your insight, which i know is personal and professional!

@lisacurran1 @tdsb @Sflecce I’m a teacher...so I think that should qualify me to comment. I have colleagues without timetables or classes. Everyone is confused and frustrated. My point is that the school boards are doing the best they can given the mandates they have. Again, take up with @Sflecce.



@tdsb I have two kids in grade 5and grade 2and we still have no teachers and no letters. Does that mean we'll have to wait longer?



@TDSB_DLL @tdsb @D2L @GoogleForEdu @LC1_TDSB @LC2_TDSB @LC3_TDSB @LC4_TDSB Having trouble getting the video to work but this sounds intriguing!



@TracyinMarkham @tdsb I love online school & I really thought I was gonna have a chance to get better grades & not fail any classes but I guess not..



@bdidol @tdsb Yes thank you. I want them to explain to my 10 year old who is upset that her friends in person learning have done nearly two weeks of school and she had likely another week. We then cross our fingers the teacher can actually speak and teach French b/c that shortage for FI is 😱



@TracyinMarkham @tdsb Yes I’ve tried that my problem isn’t with bright space it’s with aw I’ve tried all the password methods & my 2 guidance councillors won’t even reply but they replied to other people.



@DBischof1 @tdsb @NYGH_News They’ve removed runny nose and sore throat from the list in BC for this very reason.



@Alisongsv Hi Alison! My son in LC4 (gr2) still hasn’t been placed. But I didn’t receive any emails from TDSB tonight. Does that mean he’s not getting a teacher? #Help







@OhHeyMissDee @tdsb @Sflecce If you don’t have a virtual student without a teacher right now I’m sorry but you don’t know what I’m talking about. The opportunity for us to assess remote & switch back quickly if need be is being taken away. Virtual learners without teachers are getting the sh$t end of stick.



@ShereneSahib @LC3_TDSB Our parents are so fantastic! We are so fortunate:)



@ChristopherJO_Y @ShoooshK @tdsb Because the TDSB has an obligation to the public. The public needs are dynamic and this an extremely massive undertaking that is truly unprecedented. They are one of the largest school board in the continent...



@mslutdsb @LC3_TDSB @tdsb What grade are these cuties? Bon voyage to Virtual World!



@tdsb Have been stuck without a teacher all week, I’m hoping I can finally get one tomorrow.



@lisacurran1 @tdsb @Sflecce Boards also have to make sure that latecomers are not disproportionately disadvantaged because they may have a variety of valid reasons for delay. Equitable education becomes all the more important to protect in these unprecedented times.





@lisacurran1 @tdsb @Sflecce They’re damned if they do & damned if they don’t. If latecomers weren’t able to switch, there would be equal outrage from parents who, watching COVID cases increase, want to move online to protect their families. It’s a difficult situation. I’m sorry if your kids are affected.



@mslutdsb @LC3_TDSB @tdsb Love it! Going to try this with my littles!!
