Overview: BC’s New Curriculum

Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 11.53.11 AM

As of September 2016 K-9 students will transition over to the new curriculum of the BC Ministry website.  In September 2018 students in grades 10-12 will transition over to the new curriculum.  Tools will be added to the Ministry website here on an ongoing basis to help educators understand the journey.

GREAT NEWS!  The Learning Commons Team has completed the BC Ed Plan K-9 Resources Page.  You will want to check it out!!   (You can also click on the link in the navigation to the right.)

As we begin this journey together we are hoping to educate you along the way with our own tools and tips to help you learn how to best support your students with these changes. Watch this short 4 minute video by principal Bruce Hildebrandt, on the reasons why we are moving to a new curriculum here.


We are excited to launch off with new digital and non digital kits (resources) for all grades in K-6 by August and 7-9 coming in 2017.  To find our completed unit kits for the new curriculum go to this page here.
