The Vancouver School Board says it’s delaying kindergarten intake draws at full schools to wait for the outcome of talks between the BC Teachers Federation and the Provincial government on class size and composition after November’s Supreme Court of Canada ruling.
The schools affected are: Carnarvon, Emily Carr, Cavell, Dickens, Dickens Annex, Elsie Roy, False Creek, Fraser, Gordon, Hudson, Livingstone, Nelson, Norma Rose Point, Strathcona, Roberts, Roberts Annex, Weir and McBride Annex.
In a release which can be read here, the Board says the outcome of the talks will affect how many students can be accommodated for the 2017-18 school year, including Kindergarten students.
It goes on to say the number of spaces available in each school across the district varies, and the numbers won’t be clear until more information from the talks is available.
It adds all registrants will have a space in the district, and it’s working to accommodate any students on a wait list.
