Spring Break - school closure March 8th-23rd

During the week of March 8th to 16th, SD 63  facilities are closed to all staff and community users.  Aside from security and some very specific emergent requirements, there will be no access to any district sites.  This is the closure period established by the Board of Education and the full shut-down is mandatory for those days.  The School Board Office will reopen March 17th.

Have a restful and enjoyable 2 week break.  

Learning Stories: Documentation Project

Pedagogical narration or learning stories at their simplest are recordings through video, photos or the written word of ordinary moments of a child's day. We use pedagogical narrations as a way to make children's learning visible to everyone. They are used as a tool to reflect on the children's understanding of the world around them, the theories they are developing about the world, and our practice as educators.

Press Release Regarding openStudent

Over the last two years the Saanich School district has been developing a new electronic student information system called openStudent to be made available to all British Columbia schools. This project was undertaken because the current system called BCeSIS was to be decommissioned in 2015. At the same time the Ministry of Education entered into a contract with a commercial vendor from the United States.
