PJ PD will continue for another year, at least when it comes to teachers’ conventions.
At its June meeting held June 10 and 11, Provincial Executive Council voted to support a recommendation that teachers’ conventions be held virtually again next school year.
While the province is moving to fewer restrictions when it comes to COVID-19, there is still a great deal of uncertainty about what the future of the pandemic might look like. With many convention boards needing to secure venues and finalise other contracts for an in-person event, Council felt that it needed to make a final decision on this matter before the end of the school year.
“Council appreciates the very hard work of all of our teacher convention association volunteers,” said ATA president Jason Schilling.
“They worked very hard to put on outstanding conventions last year in an online format. Teachers provided very positive feedback on those conventions, and while we all want to see each other in person, this was the right decision to make at this time.”
This decision of council affects only the 2022 conventions and is not necessarily reflective of other Association events next year or of future conventions beyond 2022. ❚
