Dear Trustees, Abbotsford School District Board of Education
It has come to the attention of the Abbotsford Parents Action Group that the District of North Vancouver has submitted a motion for the creation of a regulatory body to oversee Education Assistants in the Province in British Columbia, to be voted on at the BCSTA Annual General Meeting in April 2016. This is in line with the motion that was accepted by the British Columbia Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) also calling for the development of standards and a regulatory body to oversee Educational Assistants in this Province.
On behalf of the members of our Action Group, we would ask the Abbotsford School District Trustees to support this motion. Our vulnerable students deserve to have the best possible care and attention in our schools. The development of a regulatory body to ensure standards of care are upheld would be a positive step forward to ensuring this happens.
