Current Information for Parents about Job Action

September 15, 2011

During Phase 1 job action, teachers will continue to carry out their normal classroom

duties, including delivery of the BC curriculum

· During this phase, teachers will not be required (under the Labour Relations Board

Essential Services Act) to participate on any administration or school district organized

meetings; to supervise students before and after school, at recess and lunch hour

(teachers in Coquitlam have had a duty-free lunch for two decades); prepare or

distribute formal report cards; or conduct administratively organized parent/teacher


· As the safety of students always remains a top priority, administrative and management

personnel are providing student supervision at recess and are assisting with bus

supervision as identified

· CUPE support staff are performing their duties as usual

· Should parents have concerns about their child’s progress, they are encouraged to ask

questions of their child’s teacher directly, as teachers will not be providing formal written

reports or conducting administratively organized parent/teacher interviews

· The District will strive to preserve respectful relations with all its partner groups during

job action, while meeting our obligation under the School Act to educate students
