OCEA School Board Subscriptions (SBS) for Yearly Memberships

The Ontario Cooperative Education Association (OCEA) is, once again, offering the School Board Subscription (SBS) for membership purchases, per school board, for the 2019-2020 school year.

The SBS fee is based on the amount of Secondary Schools, Alternative and Adult Education schools in your School Board that are offering Cooperative Education and any other forms of Experiential Learning programs.

The SBS is not only for Cooperative Education teachers / educators but also any teacher or School Board educator at the Secondary School, Adult and Alternative Education level that is involved in and supports Cooperative Education and all other forms of Experiential Learning programs.

If you would like to purchase the SBS for your Secondary School, Adult Education Teachers and Board Level Educators in your District School Board for the 2019-2020 school year, please send a “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, Alternative and Adult Education schools in your school board.

Once your “SBS Request to be Invoiced” has been received via email, and an invoice has been issued to you, the Executive Administrative Assistant (Carol Madsen) will send you a SBS code and as the school board lead, you, would then provide that SBS code to your Secondary School, Adult and Alternative Education Teachers and Board Level Educators to register or renew for their own individual memberships using the SBS code supplied in our online membership system at https://ocea.on.ca/welcome/.

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

If you have any questions, please contact our Executive Administrative Assistant, Carol Madsen at ocea@rogers.com.
