New District-Wide Plan for the Future of School Buildings

The Burnaby Board of Education unanimously approved a new Long-Range Facilities Plan that continues to place students at the centre of future plans for school buildings.

The multi-year plan will have a tremendous impact on the shape of things to come, as it guides the Board in capital plan submissions, which are requests for provincial funding for projects such as new schools, expansions and seismic upgrades.

The new Long-Range Facilities Plan is informed with data from the City of Burnaby and was created after a period of consultation with First Nations Elders, as well as engagement with parents, students, staff and the community. This fulsome strategic document lays out a roadmap for facilities by capturing how to best meet upcoming educational needs, while anticipating challenges and population growth in Burnaby.
