Ministry of Education Update – COVID-19

Released on March 17, 2020

As schools wind down this week in response to COVID-19, a Response Planning Team has been assembled to work through the logistics of the transition.

The team, which began its work yesterday, consists of individuals from the Ministry of Education, Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation, Saskatchewan School Boards Association, the Saskatchewan Association of School Business Officials and the Saskatchewan League of Educational Administrators, Directors and Superintendents.

“I have every confidence in our partners in education that they will make the best possible recommendations as we transition students out of Saskatchewan Prekindergarten to Grade 12 classrooms,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to supporting our students and staff in these uncertain times.”

Planning is underway to ensure students continue to have supplementary learning through distance opportunities and take-home resource kits; as well as logistics to ensure backroom functions such as staff assignments and payroll.

Additional information will be provided as the Response Planning Team’s work continues.  The next meeting will be held today.
