“We have to maintain competitiveness with our neighboring school divisions so that's a critical one. The other thing is to make sure that we pay our teachers fair as well as enough, so that everybody has a living wage,” said Board Chair, Dr. Albert Edwards.

At today's meeting, other issues discussed were improving SOL scores and working towards all city schools becoming accredited.
