The Vice Chair of the Vancouver School Board says a decision will come by Friday on whether or not to go ahead with summer school.
This as the BC Government applies to the Labour Relations Board to have summer school for students who failed courses declared an essential service.
“Vancouver has the biggest summer school program in the province, last year we had 17,000 students, we have students coming from all over the world to participate, but we can’t have a picket line up, so we need to solve the problem.”
Mike Lombardi adds trustees voted last night to urge the Premier to appoint an industrial inquiry commissioner.
Lombardi wants this person to be given the power to issue non binding recommendations to solve the ongoing teachers dispute.
