A Message from the NTCI Parents Mailing List:
November 11, 2015
The Toronto District School Board is currently involved in local negotiations
with the Ontario Secondary School Teachers'
Federation<http://www.osstfd12.com/> (OSSTF), which represents secondary
teachers. As of November 4, 2015, OSSTF began a selected withdrawal of services.
As part of that selected withdrawal of services, the union directed that
* WILL upload as per their normal practice all marks and attendance records.
* Teachers WILL NOT provide Learning Skills or Comments for report cards.
Report cards are scheduled to be sent home on 20 November, 2015. Depending on
the method by which your child's teachers uploaded their marks, the Learning
Skills and Comments section of the report card may be different from class to
class. For some subjects the space may be left blank while others may include a
generic comment (e.g. "There are no comments at this time.") and a learning
skill mark of "Satisfactory" as a placeholder.
As a result of the withdrawal of services, the parent/teacher interviews
currently scheduled for 26 November, 2015 will be modified.
Parent/guardian-teacher interviews will take place tentatively on 26, November,
2015 in the afternoons from 1:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Periods will be shortened
and we will run an abbreviated instructional day. Parents/guardians are
encouraged to contact teachers directly to discuss the progress of their child.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds and are committed to
doing everything possible to ensure the integrity of the learning day.
Thank you for your understanding. We will continue to provide more information
as it becomes available. Please continue to visit
