The British Columbia Ministry of Education is working with all 60 school districts, independent school authorities, First Nations schools and education partners to support a coordinated approach in response to COVID-19. The health and safety of school staff, students, parents and communities is the highest priority.
To ensure B.C.’s K-12 education system supports the coordinated approach, the work will be guided by a set of principles to:
- Maintain a healthy and safe environment for all students, families and employees.
- Provide the services needed to support children of our essential workers.
- Support vulnerable students who may need special assistance.
- Provide continuity of educational opportunities for all students.
The Ministry of Education has developed Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) with the latest developments and will continue to update them.
