Teacher Job Action

For further information about the Teacher Job Action, please see the attached letter from Mike McKay, Superintendent of Schools/CEO.
Also, we would like to clarify that, as a result of Phase 1 job action, “teachers need not provide any student assessment data to Administrative Officers or the school office, except Grade 12 marks required for graduation, post-secondary applications and scholarship purposes”.All other students, however, will receive a report card from the Administration that, at a minimum, would include the student’s division, teachers, courses, or subjects and attendance.If you have any questions regarding the reporting process, please contact the school.
