ERGO members from school boards across Ontario meet 5-6 times throughout the school year. Since COVID-19, ERGO members met virtually each week (April-June 2020) to collaborate, create resources and share best practices to support school boards and system level decisions to represent the specific needs of ELLs in Ontario schools. ERGO members met again online at the end of August 2020.
Each Ontario school board from across Ontario can have 1-2 ESL/ELD lead teacher representatives join ERGO each year.
