The sequence of events involved in the ‘lock out’ imposition is interesting. You might want to follow it to understand why there is confusion about exam marking, grads, etc.
The sequence starts with a letter to the BCTF from BCPSEA (you can find a link to the letter on this page): keep in mind the letter has apparently been ‘leaked’.

You might then want to view the BCTF response to the letter – whether or not you support the teachers – many of the points raised by the BCTF President seem somewhat reasonable based solely on the letter. (It might be difficult to ignore some of the political noise accompanying the concerns – but try!)
Again it might be difficult to ignore some of the political noise accompanying the response, but try! It appears that the Chief Negotiator for BCPSEA suggests that what letter states and the intent were two different things: i.e. the explanation of how exams will be marked during the lock out.
At about 2:25 into the video Cameron answers the question as to whether or not class size and composition might be part of the concerns discussed between the BCTF and BCPSEA.
Until the letter is rescinded or revised, I would assume that, as the only written document giving teachers direction, any breaking of the terms imposed by the lock out letter could lead to teacher discipline – up to and including dismissal.
Maybe the letter needs to be revised so that what is stated and the intent match.
