tdsb cuts: the deets

Senior staff at the TDSB have recommended that the school trustees approve the staffing levels of school-based staff for 2012-2013.  Do you agree?  Call your trustee today.  Witness the board meeting Wednesday March 28th where you can hold your trustee’s “feet to the fire”.

From reliable sources, CPE has obtained the altered staff allocations suggested for the fall. Read on, speak with your children and neighbours… and try to pass your views on to your trustee before the end of the week.
