Teachers get OK for some school trips
HALIFAX — The Nova Scotia Teachers Union has modified its work-to-rule directives, including allowing teachers to supervise some out-of-province trips. The NSTU says trips “that have signed contracts involving money’’ can go ahead. It also says members can use the information-management software known as Power-School for course changes and transfers and to register students. It says all co-op and alternative-learning “O2’’ courses and programs can proceed during school hours. Teachers began a work-to-rule campaign on Dec. 5 that had a sweeping effect on school life across Nova Scotia, cancelling shows, trips and sports. Teachers will vote on the latest agreement on Wednesday.
