Why are #ocsb parents being pressured to pay fees and buy agendas? #ottnews #ottschools

OCSB has $$ to pay for a $70,000 for a 5hr PD day at Shaw Centre, but no $ to pay for necessary supplies like student agenda books?

Just some examples are where parents are NOT told that these fees are voluntary!!

 

Activity Fee for September Activity fees for our students will be $40.00 with a maximum of $90.00 per family.  These fees are used for such things as class trips, guest presenters, art workshops, special classroom activities and our agenda.

In accordance with Board policy, the school will provide all the necessary basic instructional supplies”

 

but they MUST pay for “necessary” and “important” agendas!
