Strategic Planning

Our 2023-2028 strategic plan was developed in partnership with a wide variety of rights-holders, in partnership with Tla’amin Nation. These groups include: parents, staff and teachers, community members and students. In May 2023, the Board launched a public survey which received over 500 responses, indicating priorities, visions and ambitions for the future. Focus groups and meetings were held with qTA, CUPE and other key partners, at schools and local meeting places. 


We do this by:

• Aligning our education vision and activities with the principles outlined in the Policy for Student Success;

• Anchoring our beliefs in the First Peoples Principles of Learning;

• Using an equity framework to support student achievement; and,

• Partnering with Indigenous Peoples, particularly Tla’amin Nation, who are guided by the principles of ղʔǷ.


We are privileged to encompass an incredible group of students, families, caregivers, staff, and community members, each with their own unique stories. As a District, we are big enough to welcome a diverse group of learners and small enough to be creative, adaptable, and flexible to meet their varying needs.

  • Focus on foundational learning in literacy and numeracy.
