(4) NSTU Staffing Realignment:

Mrs. Susan Kelley, Director of Programs and Student Services spoke of the changes which have occurred over the year working with students with challenges. She noted that this year the Southside Learning Centre has been re-examined to reflect the success of the present Northside program.

She noted at present, attendance is poor and the students on the Southside will be better served by attending classes in their communities.

She requested permission to put a teacher at OVEC, Glace Bay High and at BEC to ensure services are offered in all areas for these students. She noted historically the present program had worked well however there are concerns with the present program which exists.
