New Westminster School Board meeting (Tuesday, March 28)

On the agenda is our first report on our 2017 -2018 budget. This will be a difficult budget and I suspect that we will opt to mostly work on status quo while we implement the restoration of the illegally stripped contract clauses. To try to do much more then reintegrate those teachers, the old class size and composition language this year I think would be unrealistic. As I said in an earlier post the devil will be in the details and we (both the School Board and the community) will need to make sure that the government, whoever that is, follows through with the legal requirements of the contract restoration next September.

We also will be deciding the School District calendar for 2017 – 2018, keeping with the theme of everyone in New Westminster having the same Professional Days off.
