School News

Dear Parent/Guardian of Chilliwack School District student(s),

Welcome to our 2015/2016 school year. We are looking forward to our year as we anticipate working closely with staff and community for a successful year of teaching and learning. As you may have heard, the Province of BC has developed new curriculum for all students in BC, to be implemented over the next three years. Please find attached a letter from the Minister of Education, Mr. Mike Bernier, about these changes. We believe that through our ongoing collaborative work, this transition to the revised curriculum, will be a positive experience for our students and teachers. 
We wish you and your children a successful school year.

Evelyn Novak,  Superintendent of Schools. Chilliwack School District- Partners in Learning
