TVDSB expects to reduce staffing by over 300 in four years

The Thames Valley District School Board says that when the province's education plan is in full effect in four years, there will be over 300 fewer full-time teachers.

Class size increases brought in through the Ontario budget are being phased in over that period.

The TVDSB laid out a preliminary look at some of the funding changes the board faces at their meeting on Tuesday.

That includes what they call 'unfunded' positions - 38 at the elementary level and 270 at the secondary level.

There will also be a reduction in the number of early childhood education positions, with funding dropping by about $2.3 million.
