As a per student ratio, Chilliwack has more portables than any other district in the province. Furthermore, too many schools have fallen behind in maintaining a minimum level of appropriate infrastructure to meet the needs of students and staff.
- The Board of Education must find unity in addressing this issue as their first priority in dealings with the Ministry of Education as its impact is a disservice to every student, every employee and every parent in Chilliwack
- The Board of Education must work to restore the universality of public education in our school district by prioritizing investment in schools that fall short of the minimum level of services
- Our School Board must work proactively with City Hall to better understand and anticipate growth as planned by the City in Chilliwack’s Official Community Plan
