The Board was advised that timing for transitioning students to other schools was now critical and that we should place a strict timeline for the prospective buyer to submit a proposal.

(5) VACATION ACCRUAL

Mr. White informed the Board that while the Board (at a special meeting of the Board last spring) agreed that banked vacation quotas for confidential employees be paid out, there was no official resolution passed by the Board.

The Board was advised that a mechanism was now in place to prohibit the banking of vacation days. The employees are now required to draw down on a yearly basis their annual vacation allotment. Once their annual vacation allotment has been exhausted, they may avail themselves of their time in lieu bank at the discretion of management.

Moved by Commissioner Morrison

Seconded by Commissioner Pierrard

That the Board pay-out the vacation bank quotas owed to confidential employees. . .

Motion carried…
