A plea today from the Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee to the Saskatchewan Teachers Federation.
They want reassurance from the teachers that final exams won't be affected by any potential work action.
School Board Association President Sandy Urban Hall says the clock is ticking.
"Students have been accepted into post secondary programs based on the fact that they need to have those final marks in. It also would impact scholarships."
Victoria Ordu and Ihouma Amadi have been hiding in churches in Regina for a year, hoping the federal government will change its mind, and let them stay in the country.
The two had been studying at the University of Regina, but they violated their student permit, and were ordered to leave Canada in 2012.
A year later nothing has changed.
It's been one year since Nigerian University of Regina students Victoria Ordu and Ihouma Amadi went into exile.
One year of hiding in Regina churches, unable to even go outside for fear of being deported; one year of hoping and praying that the federal government will reverse their decision.
"It's been very emotionally draining" Ordu says. "It's pretty much like being incarcerated."
For the past few months the kids at Sacred Heart School in north central Regina have made do without their own gym, but by September they should have a place to go.
The gymnasium was closed in April due to safety concerns over the structure.
Now they have a temporary solution – beyond having gym outside and bussing the kids to other schools in bad weather.
Like many provinces across the country, Saskatchewan’s government has taken a keen interest in bullying.
During the past month, Jennifer Campeau, MLA and legislative secretary to the Ministry of Education held public consultations on different ways to prevent bullying.
"Children as young as four, getting them to talk about bullying and learning that it isn't acceptable," said Campeau.
The University of Saskatchewan will continue to tackle its gigantic deficit.
"We were able to balance our budget last year," said Provost and Vice-President Academic, Brett Fairbairn.
He spoke at the fifth financial town hall held at on campus Wednesday afternoon.
"We are still working on eliminating a $3 million deficit this year and we've closed a third of our long term gap by 2016. So that is good news," he said.
The overhaul of finances came after the university projected a deficit of $44.5 million by 2016 in March last year.
A one-of-a-kind dinosaur specimen is hitting the road, heading from Saskatchewan all the way to the famed Smithsonian Institute in Washington. But it isn't a typical fossil.
The Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History has asked to use a very special fossilized Tyrannosaurus Rex dropping for a new display. The exhibit, "Putting Dinosaurs in Their Place," aims to show visitors the wide variety of different specimens and sources of information like coprolites (the scientific name for fossilized dung) and tracks that scientists use when learning about extinct species.
There are some familiar phrases hanging around Saskatoon because of a special project by students from Georges Vanier School.
"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, some have greatness thrust upon them. That's my favourite," said Grade 8 student Erin Tilk.
She braved the wind to stand across the street from the Mendel Art Gallery Monday morning to watch the last of 74 banners get hung from a city light pole.
The banners are part of the "Shakespeare Said" campaign designed to brighten the streets and spread some wordsmithing in Saskatoon until September.
Nolan Barnes has been awarded SIAST Kelsey Campus’ Outstanding Citizenship Award.
In high school, Barnes said he was a bit of a party animal, getting mixed up in the “drug scene,” as he puts it. But in his senior year he was involved in an accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down.
“I wanted to be a power lineman. Unfortunately, doing drugs and other stuff, it kind of took me away from my goals,” he said. “Then when I was injured, I didn’t know what to do.”
