BC Teachers for Grades 10 to 12 will have an additional year to implement the new curriculum.
Education Minister Mike Bernier says he’s spoken with the BC Teacher federation and that’s what the majority of teachers wanted.
Bernier also made another announcement about the Foundation Skills Assessment exams.
He says starting next year, the exams will be given in the fall, rather than the spring for grades 4 and 7.
He says that will give parents and teachers lots of time to look at ways to support students who may not be at the level they should be at.
