The Toronto District School Board says more than 300 staff members who did not comply with the board’s vaccination mandate have been put on administrative leave starting today.

In a memo to parents, the TDSB confirmed that 330 staff members have been placed on “non-disciplinary administrative leave without pay” for failing to disclose their vaccination status.

“As part of this plan, we are relying on occasional/casual staff to fill in for these staff members but, like other school boards across Ontario, we are seeing lower levels of occasional/casual staff taking available jobs.” “These exemptions will only last until we are able to adequately fill these positions on a case-by-case basis,” the school board said.“We know this is an incredibly challenging time for the staff impacted by this procedure, but we are doing all we can to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff,” the TDSB said.

As of Friday, there were 1,243 known, active COVID-19 cases associated with schools in Ontario, a 26 per cent increase week-over-week.

do people forget people who work with children need to be vaccinated? like this is the only time yall bitch and complain about it

Just the tdsb doing what they do best. Being absolutely useless.

Life and everything involved in it is not linear. Money/credit will run out or be cut off. When it does, all this nonsense stops.


Well, if you don't care about the health or lives of your coworkers or neighbours, it's best you don't come into work. 🤷‍♂️

With pay

Good! Bye bye!

Oh please..all support staff exempt due to shortages told to report to work

'99 percent of staff members comply with vaccination policy' fixed the headline for you.

Decades of stats involving millions of vaccines already exist. Only 1.8% were granted exemptions. In the past, the majority of citizens neither debased the vaccine itself or its legitimate exemptions with bogus loopholes or dodges. Current staff should be part of the norm.

How sad.

What is happening with the other boards? Is the policy the same for all staff workers in the educational system? Just curious

Sure is a lot of miserable assholes in this province when you're cheering for people losing jobs for a mandated, largely inneffective 'vaccine'
