Our legislation will allow government to take real action to address classroom conditions. We will establish a council to improve classroom conditions within 14 days of the bill being passed.
The council will have $20 million over two years to address issues in the classroom and will provide a report by April 30, 2017. The Council will report on several priority areas:
- Data collection
- Assessment and evaluation
- Attendance policies
- Timing of administrative days relative to report card preparation
- Technology and work processes, including PowerSchool and TIENET
The Council will be made up of:
- 3 teachers from elementary school
- 3 teachers from middle school
- 3 teachers from high school
- 3 government-appointed representatives
- 1 co-chair appointed by the Nova Scotia Teachers’ Union
- 1 co-chair appointed by government
