Here is the audio recording of the CMEBC Town Hall on Wed June 24.
Thank you to Janet Wade (WJ Mouat Secondary), Christin Reardon MacLellan (President CMEBC, VSO Division of Education, and UBC School of Music) and their team of amazing music educators for putting together the BCMEA/CMEBC "Guidelines for Music Classes in BC" This living document will serve as a guide for all of us as we navigate through the different stages of the BC K-12 Education Restart Plan. This will be updated as needed and may be expanded as new information becomes available.
We are starting a database of teachers who are wanting to help other teachers in the province with all things non-music that occur in our schools (timetabling, budgeting, working with admin, etc.) If you are a teacher who is willing to work with another teacher, please let us know with the link here. OR If you are a teacher needing help, please fill out the form here!
PS It's the same form!
From the BCMEA & LSA/District Rep. Town Hall on Monday June 22, a list of concerns were sent up to the BCTF for the Pandemic Planning Steering Committee. All of the notes from the participating districts were amalgamated into a two page briefing notes for the BCTF. The document is listed here.
