Dear Parents/Guardians,
As many of you have heard, there is a tentative agreement between the BC Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) and the provincial government through the BC Public School Employers Association (BCPSEA).

The next step will be for members of the BCTF and all school boards in the province to vote to ratify this agreement. We anticipate that this vote will be completed by the end of the day on Friday.

If the contract is ratified, the following procedures will be followed:

School Opening
Our schools will welcome students to a new school year on Monday, September 22. The 22nd will
be the typical shortened opening day, and Tuesday, September 23 will be a full day of attendance.

Parents should check school websites and posted notices for school-specific schedules. If parents have additional questions, they should consult with their school administration.

Gradual Entry for Kindergarten
We are happy to be welcoming our youngest students into our school system. We will have a gradual entry process for the first week of school that will be communicated to parents at theschool level.

September Professional Days
As our main priority is to have our students back in school, school professional development days scheduled for September will be rescheduled to a later date in the school year. The rescheduled dates for the September professional development days will be determined at the school level in consultation with staff and parents.

Time Lost Due to Strike
The Ministry of Education has informed us that they do not plan to add instructional hours to the year to address instructional time lost due to the strike. However, at our three semestered schools,we will be balancing the instructional hours between semesters one and two.

Please continue to monitor our district website (www.sd38.bc.ca) for confirmation that the agreement has been ratified and the above information will be in effect.

Thank you once again for your patience throughout this prolonged labour dispute. We look forward to welcoming you and your children back to school and supporting their learning for the 2014-2015 school year.

Sincerely,

Monica Pamer, EdD Superintendent of Schools
