Haida Gwaii School District links to learning resources

Haida Gwaii School District superintendent Angus Wilson is telling parents to expect the teacher strike to last through the coming weeks.

Haida Gwaii School District superintendent Angus Wilson is telling parents to expect the ongoing teacher strike to last through the coming weeks.

“Negotiations between the employer and union collapsed … this means that teachers are still on strike and parents should not expect regular school for at least the next week and likely beyond,” he wrote on the school district website.

“At this point, we do not know for certain when school will commence, but be assured that as soon as the two parties conclude a tentative agreement, school will resume as soon as possible after that.”

In the meantime the district has created a webpage with links to a number of online learning tools, including free science and math instruction and courses available via iTunes.

“None of these can, of course, replace instruction but they are a good supplement,” he said.

The list of resources can be found at www.sd50.bc.ca.
