SD59 Board Of Education Addresses The Need For An Online Teacher Training Program

The Board of Education of School District No.59 (PRS) was successful in submitting a motion at the BC Public School Employers' Association (BCPSEA) annual general meeting to encourage the development of an online teacher training program in BC.  BCPSEA is the employers' association representing British Columbia's 60 public boards of education.  The Board submitted the following motion which passed without debate at the recent AGM: "THAT,  the BCPSEA Board of Directors write a letter to the Minister of Advanced Education, the Deans of Education for BC Universities and the BC Teachers' Council to encourage the development of an online teacher training program in BC."

The Board submitted the motion to address the teacher shortage in BC, which is known to be a greater problem in rural, remote and Northern school districts.  The Board believes by having access to online teacher training programs it would increase the opportunity for individuals interested in becoming teachers specifically in rural, remote and Northern districts.
