On May 26, 2015, the Ontario Labour Relations Board ruled that local secondary teachers' strikes, directed by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation in Durham, Peel and Rainbow district school boards are in contravention of the School Boards Collective Bargaining Act, 2014. As a result of this ruling, secondary students and teachers will return to schools Wednesday, May 27.
Both elementary and Credit classes will resume on Saturday, May 30 and run until Saturday, June 13, 2015. There will be no exams for credit students - only in-class assessement.
Through the international language program, students can develop oral communication, reading and writing skills in languages other than English or French. At the secondary school level, students can earn up to 3 credits for the successful completion of international language courses.
