Message from the President
The British Columbia Schools Superintendents Association is an association of district leaders from BC’s 60 public school districts. We as system leaders serve in various roles from District Principals, Directors, Assistant/Associate Superintendents and Superintendents. We are deeply committed to students, student learning and the environments that allow them to thrive. We work to create the conditions for each student to complete their public school experience as a graduate with dignity, options, and purpose.
One of the many strengths of this Association is that the members are as diverse as the areas of the province in which they serve. However, despite this diversity, we are collectively focused on the student being at the center of decision-making and action. The Association and the Board of Directors is guided by a strategic plan that outlines four goals and accompanying objective to support public education in British Columbia and each other. These goals are leadership, voice, equity and support.
The Association and its members are committed to truth and reconciliation and the role and contributions we, as system leaders must make to advancing this work in classrooms, schools, and districts. The Honorable Justice Murray Sinclair, chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, quotes, “Education got us into this mess and education will get us out of it.” We take his words as direction in our work.
