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.  

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.

We are Going Digital 

Phase II of our Building for Modern Learning engagement was originally planned as a series of in-person events and workshops. Current public health recommendations have led us to change our approach. 

We have made the decision to connect with Vancouverites interactively on an online platform - like many organizations have done in recent months due to COVID-19. In October and November, we’ll be hosting a series of digital dialogues with those who engaged with us in Phase I. We will be diving more deeply into feedback and themes that we heard in Phase I.

Once complete, we’ll report back on what we heard throughout the process.
