Implementation Day January 21st, 2022

Today for SD48’s District Implementation Day, we are engaging in an important day of learning and team-building! Similar to last year, the focus is on creating equity through a focus on Indigenous perspectives of learning through the refreshed Education Plan and School Improvement Plans. Across the district, our staff is participating in Monique Gray Smith’s online course, The Ripple Effect of Resiliency. We thank Monique Gray Smith for sharing her amazing, impactful and necessary work with us.

About Us!

Nestled in the recreation-rich Sea to Sky corridor, just 45 minutes from Vancouver, our school district serves approximately 5,000 students. We are honoured to be teaching within a number of culturally vibrant communities, from Furry Creek to D'Arcy, including the main centres of Squamish, Whistler, and Pemberton. The District also serves six First Nation communities: Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw, Lil’wat, N’Quatqua, Samhquam Ucwalmicw, Skatin, Xa’xtsa, and the Metis, Inuit, and Off-Reserve Nations. We welcome a growing immigrant population and over 200 international students annually. Also rich with an abundance of active learning opportunities, our students love to learn here!
We create safe, purposeful, and powerful learning environments in order that all students can think critically, create, collaborate, contribute, and learn.
