The workshop is for On-Call Staff without access to a computer.
The Board passed the following motion in Nov.
“That the Vancouver Board of Education engages independent experts with an understanding of students in the K-12 system to design and deliver anti-racism training for all educators with a focus on anti-Black, anti-Indigenous, and anti-Asian racism.
And that this training be at least one full day of training, including reference child rights, VSB policies and procedures on discrimination, hate, racism, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI), and incident reporting and response.
And that this training be mandatory for all employee groups and trustees to be completed by September 30, 2021 with a follow-up in the same year to obtain feedback and make needed changes.”
The training consists of 3 videos totaling 4.5 hours followed by a short survey. See email sent to all On-Call Staff on March 12, 2021
