April 22/14: Board Meeting: The Record Off The Record: Budget Vote; Professional Development; Rethink Closing Sundance (Last Chance)

McNally: That all personnel accounted for (in addition to the proposed reduction in clerical support and reduction in Learning Mentor FTE) under “Learning Initiatives” be reassigned to appropriate positions in SD61, and the department “Learning Initiatives” be closed. / Defeated. Rationale: According to the information trustees were given at orientation (the Department’s budget for 2011-12) this department’s budget is, or was pre-Learning Mentors cuts, approximately $1,088,181. There is no need for an in-house professional development consultancy.
