Fewer pupils means fewer teachers for TDSB; Early childhood educators, support staff also on chopping block this fall, report says

Toronto’s public board is looking at cutting more than 100 teachers as well as 45 early childhood educators for this fall as enrolment continues to decline.

In a report to trustees who sit on the budget and enrolment committee, board staff outlined a number of proposed changes, including 38 fewer elementary teachers, 64 fewer high school teachers and 45 ECE’s working in full-day kindergarten classrooms.

Also on the hit-list are 46 lunchroom supervisors, five caretakers and four secretaries. A final vote is expected March 9.
