How the Manual is Organized
The manual is organized according to the classification system developed by the National School Boards Association (EPS/NSBA). The system has been adapted for use by the Vancouver school system.
There are 12 major classifications, each bearing an alphabetical code. Subclassification under each heading is based on logical sequence and alphabetical subcoding.
The contents that follow the division for each major section present the classification system, section by section, and serve as tables of contents for each section or "chapter" of the manual.
