District Support Services

The Vancouver School Board has a wide range of district staff and professionals who work with our classroom teachers to ensure that their students' diverse learning needs are met. Access to these supports is through the School-Based Team, a collaborative problem-solving team that works with classroom teachers to develop educational programs for students who may or may not have special education designations. School-Based Teams meet on a regular basis in all schools.
