B-C teachers are set to picket outside summer schools if a new deal isn’t hammered out within five days…In a news conference this afternoon, BCTF president Jim Iker says this was a tough move for the union but the decision is final unless an eleventh hour agreement is reached.

Meanwhile Comox Valley School District Superintendent Sherry Elwood says she’s keeping her fingers crossed summer school will be a go…

And Elwood says grad ceremonies are wrapping up right now so despite major concerns, they’ve pulled them off, thanks to a lot of extra help throughout the community in the Comox Valley.

No sign of a teachers deal as the school year in the valley wraps up this week.
