Starting tomorrow, all OCSB superintendents and principals and managers amd psychologists head to Glen House Resort (nice pool in this heat). $50K down the drain to rent basically the whole resort. What the board calls networking, we call drinking (they all get a free drink ticket). There is a bonfire party on Wednesday night
This a report from last year:
Meanwhile, schools charge for mandatory items like agendas (not allowed by Ministry of Ed). No wonder the OCSB has $50K for 3 days at a resort and $70K for 4 hr PD day at Shaw centre on the Friday before Thanksgiving long weekend.
The $50K could have helped pay for air conditioning at schools or more special ed assistants..
