Urgent: Written Submissions - Educational Priorities

05/01/2019

Because the Ford Govt. is proposing deep cuts, LDSB needs to consider your educational priorities when setting its budget.  Issues that have arisen:  increase to class sizes at the secondary level which could result in classes of 40 and the loss of 80 teachers locally; mandatory 4 online courses to graduate; reduction of services to special needs students; and limiting available programs.  Priorities may not be limited to these Ministry targets, but the Board needs to be aware of them.
