There are changes coming in B.C.’s school curriculum and parents will want know where the province is heading.

École Mt. Prevost, in conjuction with Cowichan Valley DPAC, is hosting Rod Allen, the Cowichan Valley school district’s superintendent of schools, for an information session on Monday (April 25) from 7-8 p.m in the school gym.

Allen and his colleagues around the province have been briefed on the new B.C. curriculum and how it’s being redesigned to respond to the demanding world students are entering. He will give an overview of the new direction.

Transforming the curriculum is aimed at helping teachers create learning environments that are both engaging and personalized for students.

However, the heart of the redesigned curriculum still includes a strong focus on core subjects.
