SD63 school strike impact on students

UVic Teacher Education has 22 students who are on their final practicum in School District 63. Thanks to the cooperation of SD63, SD61 and the BC Teachers' Federation, we are happy to say that the teachers will be able to complete their final practicum and graduate along with their cohort. The Faculty of Education appreciates the support and understanding shown by our partners in this challenging situation.
