Re: Calendar change ‘not new,’ May 8.
Regarding your article on school-calendar changes, I think Surrey Board of education chair Laurae McNally’s quote regarding “bigger fish to fry” says a lot about her management style.
It tells me she missed the point about efficiencies resulting from expanding school calendars.
She wants “more capital money so we can build more schools.”
Any management 101 grad would tell her that efficient and effective use of existing resources means using existing capital resources at full capacity, i.e. before building more buildings, use the existing facilities to their full potential, rather than part-time, which is now the case.
