No decision until Ministry meets parents

April 2, 2024

Parents and guardians of students at the Lester Vaughan School have been assured that in-person classes will not be resumed until the Ministry of Education’s promised meeting is held.

The meeting was originally planned for the 28 of last month but was postponed due to technical issues.

Additionally, the school’s PTA requested that the meeting be set for a later date to allow all parents to attend and have their concerns directly addressed by Ian Weekes, the author of the report.

The Ministry will also be inviting officers from the Ministries of the Environment, and Health to weigh in on the existing conditions and further inform the decision on the way forward for the school.

The Presidents of the BUT and BSTU Rudy Lovell and Mary-Anne Redman were given an update yesterday by the Chief Education Officer Dr. Ramona Archer-Bradshwa.

Meanwhile, the school’s Principal has already communicated with the President of the PTA.

The Ministry has guaranteed that a new meeting will be set with all the required parties in attendance once all of the required information is collected.

The Ministry of Education says it appreciates all efforts being made by all parties as they work towards a safe and favourable resolution in the best interest of students, teachers and parents.
