Public, Catholic boards partner to provide service
It will instead be co-ordinated by the Rainbow District School Board.
Sudbury Catholic director of education Catherine McCullough said her board has administered English-language CTC education programs for about a decade. It provides the service in partnership with Rainbow.
There's also a French-language class at CTC administered through a partnership between the local French public and French Catholic school boards.
Although the changeover was prompted in part by the impending retirement of the Sudbury Catholic teacher who runs the program, the board just thought it was time Rainbow had a turn administering the service, said McCullough.
She said the changeover is not related to Sudbury Catholic's accumulated deficit, which stood at $2 million as of the end of August. The board looks to balance its books by August 2015.
It's yet to be decided which board will supply the teacher to take over for the retiring staff member.
Student services will not be affected, McCullough said.
Rainbow director of education Norm Blaseg said the board is happy to take on the administrative role.
“Any time we can provide services for kids, I think we put ourselves in a great position, and our parents and students are benefactors,” he said.
