Ministry of Education Release: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on Continuity of Learning

UPDATE - April 1, 2020 (3:00 pm)

The British Columbia Ministry of Education is working with all 60 school districts, independent school authorities, First Nations schools and education partners to support a coordinated approach in response to COVID-19. The health and safety of school staff, students, parents and communities is the highest priority.

To ensure B.C.’s K-12 education system supports the coordinated approach, the work will be guided by a set of principles to:

1| Maintain a healthy and safe environment for all students, families and employees.

2| Provide the services needed to support children of our essential workers.

3| Support vulnerable students who may need special assistance.

4| Provide continuity of educational opportunities for all students.

The Ministry of Education has developed Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) with the latest developments and will continue to update them.
