Notice of Motion Re: Teacher Workload Update
After the last round of contract talks with the teachers the Ministry of Education initiated a committee that would study teacher work load. The committee produced a report titled “Towards a More Effective Classroom: Enabling Teachers to Focus on Student Learning” and the ECSD received it at the end of October 2013 from the ATA Local 54 C2 Committee. The 4 priority issues identified by teachers were: inclusion, teacher time, supervision (e.g. lunch time supervision), and report cards.
The Administration provided a report to the Board in regards to the C2 Committee’s recommendations in April 2014. I recommend that the Administration provide a progress report to the trustees on the implementations of the C2 committee’s recommendations at our October 2014 public board meeting.
Once we receive the update, I will post it here on my website.
Update: I learned at the October 14, 2014 public board meeting that the administration will bring a report back to our board at the end of the year so keep posted!
