School board receives audit report Trustees for the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) received good news during their October board meeting. The auditor’s report for the CDSBEO presented a positive pic- ture for the school district’s finances and operations during the 2014-2015 fiscal year. CDSBEO Education Director William J. Gartland noted that the report also provided district trustees and staff with guidelines for monitoring future expenses. But Gartland added the district had maintained its balanced budget, as the province demands, while still making good on special education program goals and also maintaining smaller class sizes in its elementary schools, thus allowing more one- on-one teaching time between instructors and students. – Gregg Chamberlain Anyone with information on Land’s whereabouts or who may have seen him is asked to call the police through the 911 system, the ROPE Squad, at 1-866-870-7673, or the CrimeStoppers toll-free confidential tips line at 1-800-222-8477. STEO prepares winter bus travel The Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) consortium is preparing for the arrival of winter. The group manages student busing services for the Catholic District School Board of Eas- tern Ontario and the Upper Canada District School Board. The STEO has sent out letters to parents of students in both districts updating them on the process for notices of bus cancellations due to inclement weather and/or hazardous road conditions. The STEO uses its own website, at www. steo.ca, and also radio and television notices to announce bus service cancellations or delays. STEO staff review weather forecasts every day before 2 p.m. for any foul weather alerts that could affect student transport and then notify bus contractors. Forecasts are reviewed again at 9:30 p.m. If storm, freezing rain or other weather problems are expected, the STEO calls Pelmorex/The Weather Network at 4:30 a.m and also a group of consulting contractors on road conditions for a final check. Information from police and municipal road crews is added to the data before making any cancellation decisions. The school district has the final decision on route cancellations, which are made by 5:45 a.m. as some buses begin driving at 6 a.m. Parents are advised to check both the STEO and their local school district website on a regular basis for bus service notices. – Gregg Chamberlain Photo ROPE Squad - Residents are asked to keep watch for a former inmate wanted for breach of parole.
