Facilities[edit]

The SD42 Strategic Facilities Plan identifies and rationalizes current and future capital requirements for school sites, new schools, and facility upgrades based on building condition, seismic vulnerability and ongoing maintenance/life cycle costs; as well as new education initiatives.

This completed plan, which aligns with the board’s strategic direction as outlined in the Roadmap to Excellence, provides the critical context for discussions with the municipalities regarding eligible school sites, the Ministry regarding high priority project requests, and the community regarding the board’s vision and priorities surrounding district facilities.

The Strategic Facilities Plan has been created in three steps:

1. Phase I: Strategic Facilities Review 2. Phase II: Strategic Facilities Consultation – Facilities and Learning for Today and Tomorrow 3. Phase III: School District Strategic Facilities Plan

The information gathered in the first phase was presented in the Strategic Facilities Review document, which in turn formed the foundation for phase two consultation. Phase two consultation included a meeting with the City of Maple Ridge and a meeting with the City of Pitt Meadows, a workshop with Board of Education Advisory Committees and Education Partner Groups, as well as a public engagement process consisting of two online surveys and an Open House.

The information presented in the Draft Strategic Facilities Plan was a culmination of the work done in phases one and two. It included draft recommendations in the areas of proposed new programs of choice, catchment area changes, and capital plan priorities for existing facilities and future schools. These draft recommendations have been shaped by the feedback the school district collected throughout the consultation process.

In the final step, the school district consulted with the public using a variety of tools to inform Board of Education decisions on the Strategic Facilities Plan and deepen public understanding about the proposed draft recommendations. This final consultation included a public board meeting, an online survey, an Open House, a meeting with school principals and vice-principals, a meeting with the City of Maple Ridge and the collection of written feedback from the community. The feedback received through this final consultation process was used to shape the recommendations included in the Strategic Facilities Plan.

SD42 Strategic Facilities Plan adopted October 2015
