CALGARY (660 NEWS) – The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) is reporting over 21,000 students have signed up for online learning so far.
The numbers equate to about 16 per cent of CBE students who will take part in the distance learning program.
Despite the registration deadline already passing, that number could change though as parents have one week left to keep to withdraw from the online hub.
Parents can’t switch to in-person learning until February, but the board said it may revisit that deadline in December.

In comparison, The Edmonton Public School Board reported around 30 per cent of its students have signed up for online learning.
Meanwhile, The Calgary Catholic School Division had over 5,000 students register as of last week. The division said it had to add a second registration period in September to deal with demand.
The CBE said families who have registered for the online hub will receive a confirmation email from their school on Friday with next steps.
