In the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District, we are wholeheartedly committed to fostering a learning and working environment that embraces and uplifts every student and staff member.

Our objective is to ensure equitable opportunities that meet the needs of the wonderfully diverse community we serve. We are dedicated to this goal and with that in mind, the district is establishing a comprehensive three-year Accessibility Plan.

This plan will play a pivotal role in ensuring accessibility remains a priority as outlined in our vision and mission. It will allow us to continue working towards our vision by addressing the diverse needs of students and staff. We will be able to better support all individuals in their development as successful learners and respectful, caring and responsible members of society.

The Accessible British Columbia Act aligns with our district’s core values and we are committed to supporting equity of access by identifying, removing and preventing barriers.

We are dedicated to providing a learning and working environment that embraces diversity, empowers all individuals, and celebrates the unique contributions each person brings to our community.
