Alternate Education Reconfiguration

Posted on: March 5th, 2018

“The Chilliwack School District is in the process of a grade reconfiguration and program redesign which is as a result of a comprehensive District plan review to develop a renewed vision for supporting students and programs. This review also included a re-envisioning on how we support students at our District’s TYPE 3 Alternate Facilities. The redesign aligns with the belief that all young adolescent learners will succeed through developmentally appropriate educational experiences by ensuring access to multiple support systems to meet the diverse academic, social and emotional needs of all of our students.

The Board of Education approved a motion in March 2017, to merge the Education Centre and CHANCE-Shxwetetilthet Alternative schools. As a result, CHANCE-Shxwetetilthet Alternative school will close effective the end of the 2017-2018 school year, with students being supported at the Education Centre and through a robust intervention plan at our renewed Middle Schools. The Education Centre will continue to operate as grade 9-12 Alternative School at the Elm Street location.”
