Online school instruction tech issues hit Mississauga and Brampton public school board

Technical issues made for a glitchy start to online learning for Peel District School Board (PDSB) schools on Wednesday.
The PDSB said on Wednesday that it was “experiencing some technical difficulties” with IT systems. The issues reportedly had to do with wifi connectivity
Some users took to Twitter to vent their frustrations.
“ Great first day back…internet barely working, can’t see 75% of my students and can barely log in,” one teacher said online.
The PDSB said it was aware of the issues and was working to resolve this problem.
“We apologize for the inconvenience. Stay tuned to our updates,” the board said online.
The board said its external internet service provider was able to identify the source of the issue and “workarounds have been implemented.”
Just before 11:00 a.m., the board saud its IT systems and performance hadreturned to normal levels.
Winter weather also impacted back to school plans for much on Ontario including PDSB schools this week. Classes were canceled on Monday after a severe winter storm, and classes shifted to online learning on Tuesday.
About 36 cm of snow fell in Mississauga, and some areas received over 50, with Oshawa setting the high for the day with 55 cm.
We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties with our IT systems. The LTSS department is aware and are working to resolve this problem.
