Whistler Area Long Term Facilities Planning

The Sea to Sky School District regularly reviews enrolment and facility matters for long term planning and has been reporting out on pressure in the area over the last few years.

On Wednesday March 7, 2018, a Whistler Area Long Term Facilities Planning Information session was held. Information was presented that schools in the area are facing significant space challenges. Increasing enrolment is projected to continue into the foreseeable future. The information from the meeting is available here and we recommend you take a moment to read it prior to completing the survey.
