17 New Teaching Positions Added to SD79
The Cowichan Valley School District got 718 thousand dollars from the province to hire additional teachers for the rest of this school year.
This in response to a recent Supreme Court decision around class size and composition.
Superintendent Rod Allen says the funding translates into approximately 17 additional teaching positions.
An announcement about long-term funding for teacher hiring is expected once the Ministry of Education and BC Teachers Federation finalize an agreement.
