Ministry of Education press release from June 17:

 

A reminder to students and parents that despite the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) strike, provincial exams for grades 10 to 12 are proceeding as scheduled and Grade 12 students can expect to receive their Official Transcript of Grades as per normal schedule and practice.

In anticipation of a full withdrawal of services by the BCTF, the British Columbia Public School Employers Association (BCPSEA) applied to the Labour Relations Board (LRB) last week to designate provincial exams and final marks for students in senior grades as essential services. The LRB announced its decision on June 12, 2014.

For grades 10 to 12 students:

* Expect secondary schools to be open only for the purpose of

administering provincial exams.

* Provincial exams are proceeding as scheduled (see schedule below).

* Students writing exams are entitled to a picket-free entry into their

schools.

* Normal school bus service will continue for the purpose of transporting

students to provincial exams.

 

For Grade 12 students only:

 

* Grade 12 exams will be marked in July and the Official Transcript of

Grades will be provided to students by the end of July as per normal

practice and schedule.

 

For grades 10 and 11 students only:

 

* Report cards are not deemed an essential service and parents should not

expect the usual year-end reporting.

* School districts will determine how to best convey relevant information

about students’ progress, available class marks, and provincial exam

results.

* BCPSEA is seeking further clarification from the LRB on the submission

of class marks.

* Expect delays in the receiving information about final course grades.

* It is expected that grades 10 and 11 provincial exams will be marked by

school administrators and the deadline for marking has been extended from

June 26 to July 2, 2014.
