  • French Immersion Survey

    Parents/guardians, students and school community members are invited to share comments on French Immersion in AVRSB through an online survey in November. The feedback collected through this survey will be considered during a review of the board’s French Immersion policy and administrative procedures over the coming months. Throughout November, go to http://fluidsurveys.com/s/avrsb_immersion to complete a survey, or visit a school to access the survey. 

  • Information for Parents and Guardians from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development

    On Tuesday, October 25, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) voted in favour of a strike. The earliest NSTU members can take any form of job action is December 3, 2016. Potential job actions can range from a province-wide strike to work-to-rule.The government will continue to work with the NSTU and is committed to addressing teacher working and student learning conditions. A new partnership working group, comprised of representatives from the NSTU, school boards and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, will have their first meeting within the next two weeks to continue to talk about the important issues facing teacher working and student learning conditions. We understand that talk of any labour disruption can result in anxiety and concern for students and their families. Should a job action occur, every effort will be made to minimize disruptions to your child’s education. As the situation evolves, updates will be available through www.ednet.ns.ca and @nseducation on Twitter.
