CUPE reaches tentative agreement; suspends work-to-rule actionhttp://cen.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/board-news/40CUPE reaches tentative agreement; suspends work-to-rule action <p>The collective bargaining agreement between the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) expired on August 31, 2014. In the SCDSB, CUPE represents our custodial and maintenance staff. Since September 10, 2015, CUPE members have been engaged in provincial job action in the form of a work-to-rule campaign.   </p><p><strong>On November 2, CUPE reached a tentative agreement at the central bargaining table with the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA).  </strong>The tentative deal must be endorsed by CUPE's local leaders before it is presented to all CUPE members for ratification. CUPE has agreed to suspend central job action while ratification takes place.  Terms of the tentative agreement have not yet been made public. </p><p> To learn more about the labour situation, visit the <a href="http://scdsb.on.ca/Board/Pages/Labour-Situation.aspx" target="_blank">Labour Situation page</a> on the SCDSB's website.</p>

BCC Contingency Planhttp://cen.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/14BCC Contingency Plan<p><strong>Contingency plans in place in case of heating system failure at Barrie Central </strong></p><p>The heating system at Barrie Central Collegiate Institute has surpassed its expected life span. The decision has already been made to close the school as of June 2016. This decision was made in May 2011 at the end of a Pupil Accommodation Review that involved all secondary schools in Barrie. The condition of the facility was a major factor in the decision.</p><p>It is possible that the heating system in the school could fail before the closure date. Plans are being developed to deal with the main scenarios that could occur. </p><p><strong>Scenario 1: the system fails and repair is possible </strong></p><p>In this case, if the repairs are minimal, the school may be closed for a short period of time. If the repairs are major, students and staff will be relocated to Barrie North Collegiate Institute while the repairs take place. The school day will be split. Barrie North students and staff will use the building in the morning and Barrie Central students and staff will use the building the afternoon. As much as possible, sports and extra-curricular activities will continue to run on modified schedules. </p><p><strong>Scenario 2: The system fails and repair isn’t possible </strong></p><p>If this occurs, the plan is to relocate students and staff to Barrie North Collegiate Institute until the outcome of the attendance area review that is taking place this school year can be implemented. A plan for the schedule at Barrie North is still being developed.</p><p><strong>Ongoing maintenance at Barrie Central </strong></p><p>There are two boilers at Barrie Central. The boilers cannot be operated at the same time. If there is a failure with one of the boilers, the system can be switched to use the other boiler. This solution is expected to keep the boilers operational. If both boilers fail, it may be possible to use a portable boiler, which would likely be located in the school’s courtyard. </p><p>The other major component of the heating system is the pipes that transport heat through the building. If there is an issue with the pipes, the failure could lead to the need for either extensive repairs or to close the building indefinitely. </p><p><strong>What happens now? </strong></p><p>It is important students, staff and parents are aware of the potential issues that could occur at Barrie Central and the impact they would have on both Barrie Central and Barrie North students and staff. We are hopeful these scenarios will not occur—the plans are being developed to make sure we are prepared in advance. Students, staff and parents will be notified a quickly as possible if an issue does occur. </p><p>The details of the building condition and contingency plans are outlined in a report in the November 2014 Business and Facilities Steering Committee Meeting package. You can find the package at www.scdsb.on.ca by clicking on ‘Board’ and ‘Meetings and events’. <strong></strong></p><p><strong>Direct link: </strong><br><a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/Board/Pages/MeetingDetails.aspx?EventId=468&m=November&y=2014">http://www.scdsb.on.ca/Board/Pages/MeetingDetails.aspx?EventId=468&m=November&y=2014</a> </p>
