1. What would you do to resolve the teacher’s job action?

2. What can SD 85 do to keep schools open in the face of potential funding cuts?

3. Is SD 85 undercutting private business by renting out a publicly supported property, Robert Scott elementary school?

1. I encourage  BCPSEA and BCTF to negotiate in good faith with a view of a settlement in the near future and forget all the shenanigans.

2. What can SD 85 do to keep schools open in the face of potential funding cuts?

At this point we are not expecting funding cuts this year, but trustees continue to lobby the Ministry of Education to find a funding formula that works for Boards of Education and the children of the north island.

3. Is SD 85 undercutting private business by renting out a publicly supported property, Robert Scott elementary school?

Robert Scott Elementary needs to be heated and cleaned on a regular basis so the building doesn’t deteriorate and renting out the gym and other rooms helps cover some of the costs.

4. I have been on the North Island for 20 years and on the Board of Education for the past nine years.  I am committed to getting the most education for the students from the funding we receive from, and I continue to lobby for more stable funding so we can offer better learning environments with more choices.
