Strategic Plan

Preparing Students for Success

In alignment with the B.C. Ministry of Education’s Framework for Enhancing Student Learning, our district has developed a Strategic Plan to outline the steps we are taking to fulfill our vision. Our 2020-24 Strategic Plan, developed in consultation with our stakeholders, sets the direction for every departmental and operational plan. The plan is comprised of the four key pillars - Student Success, Optimized Resources, Engaging Opportunities and Progressive Workforce.

Fundamentally the Board of Education is committed to ensuring that each staff, regardless of where they serve in the organization, is clear about the important contributions they make towards student success. It is for this reason that this Strategic Plan is designed to create a clear “line of sight” to the district vision. Just as every student is important, every employee’s contribution is vital to student success.
