Redesigned Curriculum Implementation
Throughout the 2015/16 school year, educators in our district continued to come together to share ideas, best practices and engaging lessons that would bring the new curriculum alive in our classrooms. This year it will be fully implemented throughout BC from kindergarten to grade 9. The Ministry of Education will continue to work closely with school districts on finalizing the redesigned curriculum for grades 10-12, which is expected to be implemented in the Fall of 2017. Learn more about the new curriculum and its implementation in this letter from Minister of Education, Mike Bernier. LETTER
