The BC Ministry of Education is building on one of the world’s most successful school systems in the world. Working together with BC teachers they have been refining BC’s curriculum with a focus on personalized learning. Beginning September 2016 it will be fully implemented from kindergarten to grade 9 and teachers of grade 10-12 students will have the option to pilot the redesigned curriculum in their classrooms.
At the same time, the graduation program and provincial assessment is also being updated with implementation expected between 2016 and 2018. The Ministry of Education has just provided some updated information. We encourage you to take some time to become familiar with the exciting learning journey that lies ahead for your child.
