Gold Trail will have bus service for exams

S.D. 74 students writing exams in the next two weeks will be able to take the bus.

The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation, the union representing teachers, has informed the school district that starting on Tuesday, June 17 teachers will be commencing a full withdrawal of services, also known as a Phase 3 strike.

Provincial exams scheduled for students in Grades 10, 11 and 12 will proceed as normal during this time. Each school will be open and will have staff to invigilate the exam and provide the support needed for each student. The BCTF has agreed that they will allow students to enter schools to write these exams without disruption.

The Labour Relations Board has ruled that student transportation to provincial exams is an essential service during this strike. As such, buses will be running according to the regularly scheduled bus routes on the days that there are secondary provincial exams scheduled in Gold Trail.

Students who leave school property before or after an exam will not be supervised.
