In 2021, BC passed the Accessible BC Act, a commitment to increase awareness of people living with a disability, visible and/or invisible, and have the right to equitable access to services, including education. As outlined in the Accessible BC Act 2021, BC Public Boards of Education are required to support equitable access to the population served by the district in three ways:
1. Develop a District Accessibility Plan
2. Create a District Accessibility Advisory Team
3. Develop a public feedback mechanism to receive information about SD70 accessibility.
School District 70 Pacific Rim (SD70) has developed an accessibility plan for students, staff, families, and visitors who access SD70 buildings and services. In addition to the district plan, a feedback form is provided for the individuals to share their accessibility experience with SD70. This feedback form offers individuals the opportunity to let SD70 know how we are doing around accessibility and where we can make improvements to be more accessible to students, families and staff in our communities.
This feedback form is comprised of questions to seek information from an individual regarding experience with accessibility within School District 70. The information received through this form will be processed and shared with management staff at the school district and with the District Accessibility Advisory Team, which is made up of community members and school district staff. Below is a link to School District 70 Pacific Rim’s Accessibility Feedback Form.
If you would like to share your accessibility experience with the school district, please complete the form at the following
Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your feedback on your experience.
