The Vancouver School Board is reminding parents there will be no school Tuesday, and likely not for a while.
Chair Patti Bacchus says it is frustrating the ongoing education dispute has derailed the scheduled start of school.
“We know binding arbitration isn’t particularly appealing to either party but it may be a way to get this dispute resolved. Our position is we need it resolved. We need students back in classrooms to get on with teaching and learning. If they can’t come up with some solution soon, they have had a long time to do it, I think we need to look to the parties to find another option.”
Bacchus says it looks pretty bleak right now and she can’t see schools being in anytime in the near future.
She says parents should make alternate plans to make sure kids who need supervision have it.
