VSB Strategic Plan

Curriculum InfographicThe Vancouver School Board is pleased to announce VSB2021, a highly collaborative process to develop a new Strategic Plan for the school district. The updated plan will provide a clear framework for action over the next 5 years, and we need your input to get it right! 

The VSB2021 project focuses on the District’s core goals of teaching and learning to support student achievement and well-being. It differs from the Long-Range Facilities Plan, which will be a framework for district facilities over the next 15 years.

School district staff will lead the VSB2021 project with support from Modus Planning, Design & Engagement Inc., a local firm specializing in engagement-rich planning.  The project team will work closely with teachers, support staff, administrators, students, parents and community members to create a bold new vision and action-oriented plan. A Stakeholder Advisory Group with representatives from a broad range of stakeholders including all employee groups, parents and students has also been formed to guide the process and ensure broad participation.

Over the next six months, the VSB2021 process will offer many opportunities for people to learn more, attend events, and provide meaningful input. Diverse voices and perspectives will be gathered to ensure the plan represents a wide range of interests.

Initial activities to ensure broad participation include:

·         A high-profile webpage with project information and newsletter sign-up –

·         A 2 minute animated video to explain the project and some of the questions to be addressed

·         A fun and interactive Ideas Fair, taking place at Prince of Wales Secondary School on February 18th from 4 – 7pm (Please note: drop-in format).

·         An online questionnaire available on the project webpage until February 21st –
