Building for Modern Learning

image description

The Board is engaging the public to learn about ways we can use VSB buildings across the city for the learning needs of students today and in the future. Our priorities are to create modern learning spaces and ensure all our students are in seismically safe schools.

This is part of the engagement process that we started in fall 2019. Through this process, we will develop recommendations for how we can use our buildings to serve the learning needs of students within seismically safe schools. Our engagement process will be inclusive, equitable, accessible and transparent.  

Building for Modern Learning is a two-phased public engagement initiative by the Board. The first phase took place online from February 19, 2020 to March 11, 2020.

Why We are Engaging Vancouverites

We are engaging people who live, learn, work and play in Vancouver to build a vision that reflects student needs today and into the future.

Hearing from a wide variety of voices is a priority for us. Engaging students, families, staff and community members is the best way for us to understand your priorities. 

Thank you to those who participated in the online phase of our engagement. 

The second phase was initially planned to have several in-person sessions through workshops and two general sessions open to all members of the public. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Phase II is has been put on hold. Please check back for updates regarding Phase II.

We remain committed to hearing from as many Vancouverites as possible during our Building for Modern Learning engagement process.  We look forward to hearing from you!
