Public Engagement

The Vancouver School District is committed to transparent and accountable public engagement and stakeholder feedback processes to inform planning decisions. Public engagement and stakeholder feedback processes will be designed and developed in accordance with Board policy and District administrative procedures. Public engagement activities are designed based on the IAP2 Spectrum of Public Participation.

Like all school districts in B.C., VSB is legally required to adopt a balanced budget (expenses cannot exceed the funds available) for the upcoming school year. The Board is also required to approve that budget at a public meeting.
