The Algoma District is being affected by ongoing teachers’ protests.
All Algoma District School Board elementary schools classes are cancelled today with members of the Elementary Teachers of Ontario on the picket line.
And, the Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon (French Catholic) schools will close both its elementary and secondary schools tomorrow, due to increased escalation by both the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation and French Catholic elementary teachers union.
The job action also affects all Grade 7&8 programs at secondary schools, Rockhaven School and adult literacy programs in the various boards.
The unions are protesting the lack of bargaining talks with the provincial government on the key issues of e-learning, class sizes and wages.
English Catholic and French Public boards are not affected.
