General School Supply Fee

The Vancouver School Board offers the service of purchasing basic school supplies in bulk at wholesale prices and passing the cost of savings on to families. The School Supply Fee for 2023-24 is $35.00 per student.

The fee covers basic consumable school supplies used for students' personal use such as paper, writing tools, glue sticks, erasers, exercise books and art supplies. Supplies are provided for the full year.

Field Studies and Supplementary Fees

Throughout the school year your child's teacher may plan supplementary learning opportunities at locations outside of the school and request monies towards entrance fees, transportation or equipment rental. Your child's teacher will communicate this information to you directly.

Financial Hardship

As a reminder, the Vancouver School Board will not deny a child access to the school supplies required for his or her educational program because of financial hardship. Nor will any child be excluded from activities where a fee is charged. If at any time there is a financial challenge, please contact the school vice principal. All requests will be treated confidentially.
