Two boards, One Bus program
Two boards in Edmonton, Alberta are considering sharing their buses in order to save money. One is Catholic, and the other is public. I wonder at the logistics of this though. Would all the kids get on the buses at the same time, and get off at their respective schools, or will they stagger the start times to use them separately I can't see how that would save them any money over the current system, so it's probably the first option?
Has your board tried anything similar?
Suspended from School for Hair colour
In another cost cutting measure, again in Alberta, but this time in Fort McMurray, a board is considering slightly lengthening their school day Four days a week and removing Friday from the school week. The Catholic board in the same city has already done this and has saved over 600, 000 in the two years since they started the initiative.
Teachers promise a trip to Disney, turns out it was a prank
One of the teachers involved believed their personal materials were being refilled through by students, and this prank was the punishment to the entire grade. VERY bad judgement! There would have been a better way to get your point across that you shouldn't be going through the teachers desk than this mean spirited trick.
