BUDGET- COURSE FEES
As per Cynthia's e-mail earlier in the year, we have to be careful about charging course fees. Please be careful how you word things. I will adjust budget requests to reflect these changes.
I will be submitting budget requests this week and will give you an update when I receive info

NUMERACY- OCTOBER 10 PD DAY
EXAMS- SCHEDULE CHANGES- FYI
We are going to a new exam model starting in either January and June. This will not affect us as much as our summative evaluations are in class.
The new model is exams written based on Timetable Schedule ie: students write Period 1 class exams on Monday, Period 2 on Tuesday etc.
Pros- you supervise your own exams, less supervisions, no conflicts, no confusion about time
Cons- multiple exams
As I said, I don't think this will impact us too much
