CFRA Live – Ontario school board pens open letter to Education Minister Stephen Lecce, voices concerns over COVID protocols


As students prepare to return to the classroom on Monday, a growing number of critics are feeling very uneasy. Here at home, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board has voiced their concerns, but the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board has been one of the most vocal parties so far. Based in Napanee, they have penned an open letter to the leader of Ontario’s education file, concerned over a lack of consultations with school boards and unions before a decision was reached. Other areas of concern include broadband inequities, access to testing kits, and access to N95 masks. Tom Dall is the Chair of the ALCDSB’s Board of Trustees and he joins Andrew Pinsent on today’s edition of CFRA Live.
