One Year Extension for Curriculum Implementation

B.C. teachers and students in grades 10 to 12 will have more time to start using the draft new curriculum and help refine it, thanks to a one-year extension of the implementation period. This adjustment provides more time for educators to review and provide feedback on the Grade 10-12 curriculum, and also provides districts and schools more time to fully understand and prepare for the changes. In addition, the revised timeline will enable further engagement with post-secondary institutions, parents and students. Click here to learn more.
