Chilliwack – Back on March 7, 2017, the Board of Education approved the concept of reconfiguration of Chilliwack Schools to K to grade 5, grade 6 to grade 8, and grade 9 to grade 12, with the exception of Rosedale as K to grade 8. Implementation will occur in fall 2018 and the Board will be provided with regular reports regarding implementation plans and consultation.
The Board of Education understands that Reconfiguration will have an impact on our schools, students, parents, staff and the community, and that there are many questions and much planning and consultation required.
The Reconfiguration – Implementation Advisory Committee, Co-Chaired by Trustee Bob Patterson and Superintendent Evelyn Novak, along with Committee members representing trustees, district leadership, principals/vice principals, teachers, support staff, DPAC, PACs, parents and our Aboriginal Advisory Committee, met for its regular meeting on Tuesday, October 10. Three (3) Draft Options were reviewed regarding redefined Boundaries and Feeder Schools, with the caveat that there may be minor amendments to options provided.
The Committee may have another meeting in October to provide additional feedback, after the Board of Education reviews the Options and gives further direction.
