Teacher talks to resume, SD 46 confirms report card impact, SD 68 still assessing

Bargaining is set to resume Thursday morning with the BC Teachers Federation saying it still thinks a deal can be done by June 30th, but if not the teachers will carry the strike through the summer.
The union and the province held informal talks Wednesday which were expected to concentrate on finding a mediator, but it’s not clear if, or when, a mediator might join the negotiations.
Meanwhile, School District 68 says it’s still assessing how the strike will affect report cards.  46 on the Sunshine Coast has confirmed the following changes to report cards because of the job action:
Grades Kindergarten to 7: the strike action will not allow for the completion of final report cards for students in these grades. The information that we need in order to produce report cards is not available due to the strike and, therefore, we are not able to produce an accurate statement of your child’s progress. Unless your school principal has notified you otherwise, your child will progress to the next grade in September.Grades 8 to 9: Students in these grades will not receive final report cards due to the strike. Students who were not meeting expectations may have to repeat some courses. Their programming needs will be reviewed on a case by case basis upon our return to regular operations.

Grades 10 to 11: The Labour Relations Board has ruled that final marks for students in grades 10, 11, and 12 will be submitted by teachers in spite of the strike. However, the strike action will not allow for the production of complete report cards for students in these grades. The report cards will include final marks, but most will not have comments or work habits included. Report cards will be mailed in early July.
