(schools open) The delayed school year is set to begin early next week after B-C teachers ratified a new six-year-contract that brings their months-long strike to an end. Results of a province-wide vote were announced late last night, with 86 per cent of the roughly 32-thousand teachers who cast ballots voting in favour of the agreement. School District 70 Superintendent Greg Smyth said this Monday was previously scheduled to be a professional development day for teachers, but that has been cancelled in order to get kids back into classrooms. Elementary and middle school students will be in class from 10 to noon Monday, and Grade 9 ADSS students will be in school from 10 until 2. Tuesday will be a regular day for all schools and all students
