Policy 504: Non-Teaching Personnel
​Print copy
Revised: September 25, 2001


The Board believes that the School District’s non-teaching personnel play necessary and important roles in support of the education of North Vancouver School District students. While teaching personnel play the central role in the education of students, their effectiveness would be compromised significantly without the support of qualified, caring and committed non-teaching personnel. The Board is dedicated to recruiting, selecting, appointing and retaining the highest possible quality of personnel for the various non-teaching positions in the School District.
