There has been considerable turnover of senior leadership in education of late including a new Minister and two new Assistant Deputy Ministers.
Many municipal and territorial school boards elections are upcoming this fall.
Some schools opened already to students in August, with the majority gearing up for a September start. Twenty-seven elementary schools are offering full day Junior Kindergarten (4 year olds) and the other 14 schools are offering half day JK only. There remains some teacher vacancies resulting from the teacher shortage.
