K-12 students in BC will return to classrooms in September with a new cohort or learning group system. In learning groups, a limited number of students and staff will stay together throughout the school quarter, semester or year, and interact mostly with each other.
Learning groups will have:
• Elementary & middle: 60 students and staff
• Secondary: 120 students and staff
• Less physical contact
• Fewer shared spaces
Schools will also have measures in place to keep students and staff healthy and safe. Learn more:
In September BC is moving into Stage 2 of the Government ReStart Program. Details and additional links can be found in the Bulletin.

CUPE K-12: A big thank you to CUPE K-12 members for supporting children of essential services workers and vulnerable children in B.C. schools during these challenging times. Custodians, clerical, education assistants, bus drivers, IT, and many members who were redeployed provided supports to students and their families.
