Parents, educators and community members often want to know what progress our students are making and what we focus on and prioritize as a district. The annual Supporting All Learners report identifies district priorities and measures the progress we have made in achieving these priorities.
In this report, you will learn about a school in which teachers take a comprehensive, collaborative, and research-based approach to helping students improve their literacy skills. You will learn that this approach is well supported not only by the school district but also through community structures and systems that we have developed, carefully and deliberately, over the course of several years.

On Monday, April, 29, 2013, the six school districts comprising the Fraser Valley region of the BC School Superintendents Association (Fraser/Cascade, Langley, Abbotsford, Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows, Chilliwack, Mission) provided an opportunity for 175 student representatives to discuss three key questions about the future of education.
The summary report below provides a synopsis of the day’s proceedings and an analysis of the students’ responses. It is intended to contribute the student voice to the dialogue around future directions for education in British Columbia, and to help engage school staff in planning for growth, change and improvement.

On October 25, 2012 more than 250 parents, students, teachers, support staff, school administrators and community members participated in a Ministry forum to help inform the development of future requirements for British Columbia high school graduation. The six school districts in the region, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Fraser-Cascade, Langley, Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows and Mission were represented.
On November 16, 2010 more than 200 parents, students, trustees, educators and business and civic leaders met in the rotunda at Thomas Haney Centre to participate in a conversation that will help shape the future of learning in our community.
The forum was driven by the idea that: “our children are being born into a time of exponential change where technology is growing in its capacity to change our lives; that the world of work demands innovative and creative ways of getting things done, and that our children are conditioned to learn and think in ways that the adults who parent and teach them are only beginning to understand.”
Ken Robinson, an internationally-renowned expert in the field of creativity and innovation in business and education, summarizes the issues in this video clip.
