Strike Action – Q & A

On Monday, September 21, phase 3 of the teacher job action began. You can find the details of the job action at and via the media.

Below is some information that School Council has gathered on your behalf. If you have any other specific questions you can email or send us a message through our Facebook page – Roden School Council.

1. There will be no extra curricular activities on Wednesdays, which means there is NO Cross Country on Wednesday mornings. (Cross Country will still run on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday). There are no other programs affected at this time.

2. If parents need to arrange to speak to their child’s teacher about a student’s progress, they can still do so during school hours.

3. Given that teachers can’t fill in for an absent one, the Principal or Vice Principal will either arrange a supply, or if none is available, either an emergency replacement person (over 18 and a TDSB employee with all the checks), or the Principal or Vice Principal would fill in. If all this fails, the Principal can direct a teacher to cover the class as it is considered an emergency.

4. IF there are roaming strikes in October, parents may be given 48 hours notice, but possibly less. Parents/Guardians should start thinking about what their plan for child care will be should the roaming strikes be implemented.
