School District 60 taking “day by day” approach on job action heading into new school year


School District 60 Superintendent Dave Sloan admitted the situation is making things difficult for the district, however he remains positive about the prospects of an agreement.

“What’s more difficult to gauge is the impact of ongoing job action on our start up,” he said. It’s tough on getting schools ready, it’s tough on recruitment, parents, students. There’s lots of questions about when the current job action will end and what it will look like. We’re playing it day by day. We remain optimistic that a settlement can be found and the school year can start soon as possible. We’ll wait to see like everyone else who will anxiously watch what evolves in bargaining.”

If classes do not start as they should next week a time frame would then likely be negotiated as part of a settlement with the two parties between the time of an agreement and the start of formal classes. Sloan suggested such a time frame would likely be in the 24-48 hour range after an agreement.
