No redundancies and 5 new EA positions for 2019-20

Message from the Chair of the Board

Through solid fiscal leadership, hard work by our staff, positive increases in enrolment, and attrition at BHNCDSB, we were able to declare this week that we achieved 'no redundancies' at BHNCDSB and no layoffs unlike so many other boards in the Province. 

Having said that, upon further review of our staffing situation, we are pleased to announce that in addition to our no redundancy declaration, the board is announcing the creation of five new Educational Assistant positions and maintain two Child and Youth Worker positions for the 2019-2020 school year.

This positive news for all was only achievable because of our good financial position, staff hard work, and the boards commitment to saving jobs and putting students first. 

I want to underscore that this type of good news is only possible through our collaborative efforts with all our union and government partners, working together to ensure our board is in a positive place, unlike so many other boards in the Province.

Best wishes,
Rick Petrella, Chair of the Board
