BCTF School Staff Alert


February 6, 2009

Urgent information on the FSA


The BCPSEA is attempting to expand the recent LRB order on the FSA to include:
• preparing for the FSA.
• a provision that principals and vice-principals not be involved in administering the FSA where they have not done it in the past.

The BCTF position:
• The order does not cover preparation.
• Teachers should not prepare students for the FSA.
• The order applies only to the BCTF and not to boards of education or principals and vice-principals.

The BCTF maintains the BCPSEA position constitutes a violation of the order and is seeking a resolution at a meeting at the LRB to be held tomorrow (Saturday, February 7). There will be a further report in a school staff alert on Monday.
