A reminder to all boards of the agreement to honour the February 1st deadline for teaching position ads in the various periodicals.

Note: All school boards are urged to send delegates on a regular basis to League meetings; as it provides organizational, administrative and educational resource assistance for our member schools.  These meetings provide a forum for discussion and resolution of issues of mutual interest that our schools are faced with.
