School District 68 Nanaimo-Ladysmith is a school district on central Vancouver Island in British Columbia. This includes the major centres of Nanaimo and Ladysmith. It is also covers the surrounding communities and the adjacent northern Gulf Islands.
The Nanaimo School district was formed July 30, 1870.
On Tuesday, July 28, 1942 a shortage of teachers in British Columbia, amongst other factors, resulted in two orders-in-council which resulted in one of the largest amalgamations of school districts undertaken by the Ministry of Education. The resulting school district reached from Saltair to Red Gap, but excluded the Ladysmith and Nanaimo Municipal Areas, which kept their own school districts. The new school district was called the "Nanaimo-Ladysmith United Rural School District" and was created by uniting the 19 school districts of: Brechin, Cedar North, Cedar South, Cedar East, Chase River, Departure Bay, Extension, Diamond Crossing, Harewood, Lantzville, Mountain, Nanaimo Bay, Northfield, Oyster, North Oyster, Red Gap, Waterloo, Wellington and South Wellington.
In 1945 the Cameron Report on restructuring the administration of public schools resulted in the government passing the Public Schools Act Amendment Act of 1946 which reduced the number of school districts in British Columbia to 74. This Act further restructured districts in the area.
On April 25, 1972, after years of discussions and financial difficulties, the board of Ladysmith School District (67) voted to merge their district with School District 68 to the North, and School District 65 to the South.
