School Closure
RATIONALE
The School Act and the ministerial orders that support the Act place the responsibility for school
closure on the local Board of Education. In particular, the Board must develop and implement a
policy that includes a public consultation process with respect to permanent school closures and
make the policy available to the public.
POLICY
The Board of Education of School District No. 67 (Okanagan Skaha) recognizes its responsibility
under the School Act for the effective and efficient operation of schools in the school district.
The school closure policy applies when the Board is considering the permanent closure of a
school. Closing a school permanently means the closing, for a period exceeding 12 months, of a
school building used for the purposes of providing an educational program to students.
Though there may be many reasons for closing a school, the Board of Education commits to a
complete public consultation process with all members of the affected communities prior to any
final decision being made.

vi. The educational program/course implications for affected students;
vii. Alternate potential uses of the facility;
viii. Potential parental and community support;
ix. Enrolment projections;
x. Effect on transportation services;
xi. Financial impact of the closure;
xii. Impact on district capital plans; and
xiii. Other factors relevant to whether the particular school(s) should be considered
for closure may include but are not limited to:
 The estimated number of students who would be affected in the
catchment area and surrounding schools;
 An evaluation of the physical condition of the school;
 The educational program/course implications for affected students.

Make available to the public, the facts and information received by the Board with
respect to the initial decision to ‘consider a school for closure’ as outlined in
Section 1a-b.
ii.
Provide an adequate opportunity for affected persons to submit a written
response to any proposed school closure and information and directions on how
to submit a written response to the Board. The information and directions will
advise potential correspondents that their written response may be referred to at
subsequent public forums respecting the closure, unless the correspondent
specifically states in their written response that the correspondent wishes his or
her name and address to remain confidential.
iii. Hold at least one public meeting to discuss the proposed closure, summarize
written submissions, and listen to community concerns and proposed options.
iv. Advertise the time and place of the public meeting(s) (with at least 7 days notice)
to ensure adequate notification to affected persons in the community. Generally,
this will mean a letter to parents of students currently attending the school, a

website. Specifically notify, in writing, any potentially affected local governments
and First Nations of the time and place of the public meeting.
v.

1. 1.
Only in exceptional circumstances should a board consider permanently
disposing of school property. Without the approval of the Minister of Education, a board
may only sell land or buildings to another board (including the Conseil scolaire
francophone) or independent school for educational purposes. A board may lease
property for under 10 years according to its own policies and procedures to an entity for
an alternative community use.
The Minister may approve a sale or lease of 10 years or more to an entity for use other
than alternative community use. When such exceptional circumstances occur, a board
must confirm that the board will not require the land or improvements for future
educational or community purposes.

BCSTA Province-Wide Dialogue – May 27, 2015
BC’s Framework for Enhancing Student Learning
School District No. 67 (Okanagan Skaha)
Feedback
What opportunities do you see for your school district coming from this Framework?
Preamble – Guiding Principles – 1 to 7 from June of 2014 “Set in Stone”; annual reports are OFF
the TABLE.
Opportunities:



District-wide focus – consistent – cohesive
Meaningful evidence
Sharing best practices
What recommendations do you have to help inform the development of related/supporting
procedures and activities?
We need to have the opportunity to review and revise the measurable evidence……Following
feedback…..i.e. field test….If we don’t “get it right”. This should be a “living document”…..to allow
for modification. What does the “Measurable Evidence” look like? Is there a Benchmark???
What would you like to see (and not see) in the initial guidelines for districts (anticipated
for use in September 2015)?
Some annual reports are OFF the table.
We would like to see:
 Annual reporting streamlined
 Not repetitive
 Who is our audience? If it is parents, the reporting out should use appropriate terms and
language. What is success and how is it measured?
What further engagement opportunities do you recommend for the 2015-16 school year
(provincially and locally)?
A conference bringing partner groups together to share and network; bi-annually
Any other questions, comments, or suggestions?




Will any of the “extra” expectations, tasks and reports be funded by the MINISTRY????
Allow for the flexibility for districts to attend to the needs of their students ……and to have
the flexibility to develop a district plan, tailored to our students, including assessment
techniques
Maintain the “Uniqueness” of our district
Highlight and continue to return to Elements of the Framework #3 – Meaningful and
Effective communication of Evidence

WEST BENCH
Recently a small group of staff at West Bench
gathered together to discuss how they could increase
their family involvement and also increase parent
awareness of the various health and wellness services
available within the community. The result was the
planning and facilitating of their Family Fun Night and
Health Fair. As this event was being planned, their
team began to contact and add a variety of health care
professionals including counsellors, pediatricians, and
dieticians. They were also fortunate to include a team
from the Penticton Indian Band Wellness Centre. On
the day of the event they were very pleased with the
large turnout from West Bench and the Penticton
Indian Band families. The warm weather, bouncy
castles, healthy food, and health fair made for
fabulous community event!!!

success to connect with and inspire youth through the non-profit Robb Nash Project. He is singing
poignant messages of hope and talking to students about the trials and tribulations of teenage life.
“We’re not losing our weak kids to youth suicide, bullying, drug and alcohol addiction, self-harm and
depression, we’re losing our most talented," he said. "I try to channel those negative emotions into
something more positive, to have people embrace their individualism." The hour long assembly was
commented on as “one of the most impactful assemblies we have had in recent years at SLMS.”
COLUMBIA ELEMENTARY
Students at Columbia Elementary had a very special visitor this
week: Rick Hansen! Rick was at the school to spread the message
of his Difference Makers program. He inspired everyone with his
words of advice: never give up, set your goals high, and know
that YOU can make a difference. He also recognized one of their
students, Devin, who has been battling cancer throughout this
year with an award of courage. As well, the family of ‘Little Miss
Myla’ their Kindergarten student with cancer, was recognized and
celebrated for their strength, courage, and positive
determination. Rick’s message was one that touched their hearts
and made a deep impression with everyone.
