School re-alignment

Hello everyone,

By now, most of you have probably heard that there will be a fairly significant re-shuffling with schools here in County because of the government’s decision to institute the pre-primary program.

I was only made aware of this decision yesterday at 3:00 pm, so, unfortunately, as of this time, have very few details that I can share.

However, for those of you with questions, you should know that this is not my first experience in such a re-alignment, and that the previous instances have all gone relatively smoothly.

Over the next few days I hope to find out from HRCE which HR managers are in charge of this round of changes, and, if history is any indication, meetings will be set up shortly to discuss concerns and answer questions from the impacted staff.

The impacted schools are as follows:

I understand that this may be a stressful time, but I will be working closely with HRCE over the coming months to make sure the transition goes as smoothly as possible. As always, reach out of you have any questions or concerns.
