Feedback to the Ministry of Education on School Board Hiring Practices and Class Sizes
Trustees approved the OCDSB
on the Ministry of Education’s School Board Hiring Practices Consultation Guide and the Class Size Consultation Guide. Trustees would like all hiring decisions to be based on who is the best candidate for the position.
As for class size regulations, Trustees addressed the need for sufficient funding to allow for implementation without compromising student achievement, including adequate funding for technological requirements and, if necessary, offering high school students a fifth year to fulfill their requirements. Trustees also approved the need for consultations with unions.
