VSB2021 Strategic Plan Update

Did you know? The Vancouver School Board is now updating its Strategic Plan, as part of its ongoing efforts to meet the needs of our unique district and ensure student achievement and well-being.

From January through March 2016, over 1000 people (students, stakeholders and public) participated in Phase 1 titled “Exploring the Issues”, the process to update our strategic plan.  We have now completed a Phase 1 Engagement Report, sharing the process and findings so far.

Phase 2, titled “Setting Direction, Making Choices”, is now underway, and will create the core content of the new plan.

Four “key themes” have been drafted, along with a set of “directional statements” to ensure action on each, but these are for your discussion and comment until May 6th.

There are three ways to provide input:


Download and complete a small-group discussion guide, working with some of your friends and colleagues to provide detailed feedback on the two themes you think are most important. Take notes by hand or in the PDF itself, and turn in the completed discussion guide by May 6th.

(please ensure to right click and save the document. You can open the document in a pdf reader program)


Online from April 11 to May 1st, this short survey covers the same draft content (“key themes and directional statements”) as the guides offered above, but does not go into deep discussion.

We are hosting a discussion-based workshop at Templeton Secondary School on April 21st from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. Small-group discussions on the same “key themes and directional statements” will start promptly at 7:15. Don’t be late!
