The Physical Environment
The College is committed to ensuring a safe learning and working environment. We will arrange classroom furniture to leave as much space as possible between students. The College will create specific routes for students to get to and from classrooms, including designated entry and exit points.
Assessment and Requirements for Graduation
To the greatest extent possible, assessment, evaluation and reporting activities will proceed as usual. Report cards will be provided for all students, including those who may plan to participate only through remote learning. Where assessment approaches have relied on exams, culminating activities, such as performance tasks, demonstrations, projects, and essays can be used instead to determine students’ grades or marks. We will ensure that our Upper School program of study allows students to fulfill the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and supports their postsecondary pathway destinations. The College will follow ongoing guidance provided by the Ministry of Education and the International Baccalaureate, and will ensure adapted program delivery supports student completion of both diplomas.
As students will not have access to lockers or changing areas, we are suspending the requirement for the UCC uniform. If a full schedule of in-person classes resumes, we may opt to, over time, return to the regular school uniform. While there may be occasions where some students are asked to wear First Dress, daily school attendance will require only the following:
Clean clothing: Students must wear clothing that is clean each day.
PPE: Please stay tuned for more information on this requirement, to be aligned with health and government guidelines.
UCC on top: A UCC team, House or club shirt, sweatshirt, hoodie,or quarter-zip.
Pants on bottom: Long, unripped pants (with shorts for activities to be worn underneath).
