Now that the province has announced a return to in-class learning, local school boards are rolling out their plans.

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board will have high school students attend class in groups of 15, every other day.

Ottawa's Catholic School Board said secondary school attendance will be modified, and that exact details will come as soon as next week.

Outside the city, the Upper Canada District School Board says its secondary students will attend half-days in the morning, every other day, with teachers providing online support in the afternoon.

The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario is rolling out a 'quad-mestering' model -- its high school students will attend class five days per week, but will only study two courses at a time, for nine-week blocks.

All of the boards plan to send more information home to parents in the coming days and weeks.
