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.
In order to get your input on future potential building projects and student configurations in the Whistler area, we have provided a survey here which will be open for comment for 10 days, closing on Sunday March 18, 2018.
Throughout the remainder of this school year staff will include your input as part of the overall Whistler Area Long Term Facilities Plan for the Board of Education’s consideration toward their annual Capital Plan submission to the Ministry of Education.
If you require any further information, please email SD48WhistlerPlanning@sd48.bc.ca.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.
