New Frontiers School Board

UPDATE – APRIL 2019

CLASS ACTION ON FEES FOR EDUCATIONAL SERVICES AND FOR THE PURCHASE OF SCHOOL MATERIALS

The distribution of the checks to the class action members has begun. The checks will be distributed by Collectiva services en recours collectifs inc. directly to the last persons registered as the person (s) in charge of the student concerned by the class action in the files of the school board.

The net individual indemnity per student per school year of attendance between 2009-2010 and 2016-2017 or 2010-2011 and 2016-2017, depending on the school board, is $24.09.

Parents do not need to register for the class action to receive their checks, which will be automatically posted to their last known address, or to the address they notified on the website of the class action before February 4th, 2019.

The distribution of the checks will be done one school board at a time, in a predetermined order, over a period of a few months.

The distribution of the checks for persons in charge registered as “father” or “mother” in the files of their school boards will be completed first, followed by persons in charge registered as “guardian”.

To follow the evolution of the distribution of the checks and to know the moment when the indemnities will be sent for each school board, you may consult the website ententefraisscolaires.collectiva.ca, under the tab “Distribution schedule”.
