The BC Ministry of Education is building on one of the world’s most successful school systems in the world. Working together with more than 100 BC teachers over the past three years they have been refining BC’s curriculum with a focus on personalized learning.
As you are aware, during the 2015/16 school year, the redesigned curriculum was piloted from K to grade 9. Beginning September 2016 it will be fully implemented in these grades. Additionally, teachers of grade 10-12 students will have the option to use the redesigned curriculum in their classrooms.
At the same time, the Ministry of Education is also updating the graduation program and provincial assessment 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 get familiar with the exciting learning journey that lies ahead for your child.
