Board Advocacy


The Central Okanagan is the fastest growing area in British Columbia. Every year, the School District submits its requests for new schools, replacement schools, and school additions to the Provincial government, who is the sole decision maker and funder of these requests. 

Our Board of Education is leading an advocacy campaign to help build the new school spaces our growing district needs. You can help by spreading the word about our most urgent projects, like replacing Rutland Middle School and building new high schools in Glenmore and West Kelowna. 

Below you will find facts about the most urgent capital projects. You can print, share, or use these facts in your conversations. 

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for easy sharing of new graphics and videos. Be sure to mention @sd23news and use #TogetherWeBuild whenever you post about the need for new schools in our district.
