It looks like even Comox Valley teachers were caught off guard on that BCTF call for teachers to bail out of class on Monday, instead holding study sessions to review the latest developments on contract negotiations. That sums up the take from Steve Stanley, Comox District Teachers Association President, who says kicking off province wide job action on Tuesday was expected though.

Meanwhile Comox Valley School District Superintendent Sherry Elwood says today, just may have been the final school day of the year.

Meanwhile the Labour Relations Board has ruled teachers must administer final exams in Grades 10 to 12, and must submit final marks for Grade 12 by June 20th. The BCTF is heading back into negotiations with a revised contract package, easing up on several of their key contract demands.
