Dear Mr. Price:

It is understood and agreed by the parties that, notwithstanding Schedule E, School Boards may increase the hours of instruction for students in Grades 1-3 to a maximum of five (5) hours each school day commencing September 2002, provided as follows:

All School Boards agree that, effective September 1, 2002, the length of the instructional day for all students in Kindergarten and Grades 1 – 3 in all schools in the province shall be established at a maximum of five (5) hours calculated in accordance with Schedule E, item #2 (p. 49) of this Agreement; that is, all scheduled class activities, excluding recess periods, shall be included in the calculation.

Sincerely yours,

Steve Brooks
Executive Director
