Families of Schools

The North Vancouver School District embraces a Family of Schools (FOS) model. Each secondary school is considered a “family” with its surrounding feeder elementary schools. The purpose of this model is to build and maintain positive community within secondary school neighbourhoods, enhance staff collaboration, and optimize student supports.

The FOS Model is the key vehicle to support school development and professional capacity building. The structure is intended to enable resources (physical and personnel) to be brought closer to the school and classroom level in a timelier manner. Each FOS is supported by a Director of Instruction, a Human Resource Manager, a District Administrator, an FOS Leader, and an FOS Teacher Leader. The FOS Team meets regularly throughout the school year with the respective Zone Assistant Superintendent, Principals and Vice Principals to determine priorities and plans of support. 

The FOS is a vision of a vibrant learning community where expertise can be developed and shared across school sites. This expertise includes the development of universal classroom practice through to more targeted and intensive instructional support. Key to the ongoing initiatives are the Pillars of Educational Practice (curriculum, instruction, assessment, and social emotional learning) and Universal Design (universal practices, targeted practices and intensive practices of student supports).
