The first memorandum of understanding between BCSTA and the Ministry of Education was signed almost 20 years ago by Past-President Gordon Comeau and his board of directors who saw a need to better define BCSTA’s relationship with B.C.’s government.
Since that time, the wording of the MOU has been updated to be reflective of both organizations’ current priorities. The MOU is intended to be a ‘living document’ that, by mutual agreement, can be updated over time to reflect new priorities and emerging realities.
“It is of the highest importance that we reconfirm the relationship between BCSTA and the Ministry of Education through the signing of a new and updated memorandum of understanding,” said President Gordon Swan. “This agreement defines the working relationship between our Association and the Ministry as we work together to continue to improve B.C.’s K-12 public education system and put students first. I would also like to thank our membership for their contributions leading to the development of this updated MOU.”
