The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) has announced that on Wednesday Dec. 11, OSSTF teachers and education workers in some school boards will take part in a one-day, full withdrawal of services in selected locations across Ontario: http://www.osstf.on.ca/news/mr-dec-06-2019.aspx
The Upper Grand District School Board is not listed as one of the school boards that will be included in the Dec. 11 OSSTF job action.
Please continue to check www.ugdsb.ca/labour for updates.
Due to continued inclement weather and low visibility due to fog, the Tuesday, February 20, 2018 Long Term Accommodation Plan public workshop to be held at Norwell DSS has been cancelled. All are welcome to attend the next scheduled workshop on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at Centre Wellington DHS in Fergus starting at 7pm.
On January 30, 2018, trustees approved a Public Engagement Plan as a part of the Board’s process to develop a Long Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP).
The LTAP is a strategic review of the Board’s facilities, population projections, and enrolment forecasts. At the end of the process, the LTAP will identify accommodation priorities for the Board. Public engagement is an important part of the LTAP process. We want to have conversations with our school communities to promote a shared understanding of local school issues.
The UGDSB will be hosting registration information evenings to share our *new online registration process* for both English and French Immersion JK and new SK students. Parents are welcome to attend any evening that suits them.
