OCEA School Board Subscriptions (SBS) for Yearly Memberships

At the 2018 Ontario Cooperative Education Association (OCEA) Annual Business Meeting (ABM), the OCEA Board of Directors approved a motion that the Ontario Cooperative Education Association (OCEA) will begin offering School Board Subscription (SBS) for purchase for the September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019 school year.  The School Board Subscription (SBS) fee is based on the amount of Secondary Schools and Adult Education Schools offering Cooperative Education and all other forms of Experiential Learning programs in your District School Board.  The School Board Subscription (SBS) includes not only Cooperative Education teachers / educators but also any teacher or educator at the secondary school and adult / alternative education level that support Cooperative Education and all other forms of Experiential Learning programs.

If you would like to purchase a School Board Subscription (SBS) for your Secondary School and Adult Education Teachers and Board Level Educators in your District School Board, please send a “OCEA School Board Subscription (SBS) request to be invoiced” to our Executive Administrative Assistant, Carol Madsen at ocea@rogers.com also, please indicate the total number of Secondary Schools and Adult Education schools that are in your school board.

Once your School Board Subscription (SBS) “request to be invoiced” is received and an invoice has been issued, the Executive Administrative Assistant will send you an OCEA School Board Code (OSBC) and as the school board lead / purchaser, you would then forward the OCEA School Board Code (OSBC) to your Secondary Schools / Adult Education Teachers and Board Level Educators to register for their membership using the OCEA School Board Code (OSBC) supplied to you.

PLEASE NOTE:  The School Board Subscription (SBS) is for Secondary Schools  / Adult Education Teachers and Board Level Educators ONLY – it does not include Elementary School Teachers / Educators at this time.
