In 2017, a report by the auditor general found that teachers take 29 percent more sick days — 11.6 days per employee, up from just nine days previously. While it may seem like there aren`t enough casual teachers, a DPCDSD spokesperson said insauga.com that the problem is not necessarily a lack of skilled labor, but rather problematic absenteeism among full-time employees. The report notes that prior to the 2011-2012 school year, Ontario teachers could replace their unused sick leave and then pay it into retirement. A recent segment of CityNews reported that a possible teacher shortage has caused classes to be combined — or in some cases volunteers have been called by parents — when a full-time teacher at the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) can`t do it. . . .
