2018-2022 Board of Education

The Abbotsford School District is governed by an elected seven-person Board of Education. Board members serve as School Trustees and are responsible for the education of over 19,000 students in our community. School Trustees sit on a number of school district and community committees, and act as liaisons to specific schools in the district. The Board of Education meets regularly throughout the school year. These meetings are open to the public and accessible via live stream. Meeting information and agendas are available online, a day before each meeting.

Kindergarten Gradual Entry

The Abbotsford School District has a long history of planning carefully for the transition to kindergarten and recognizes the need for a gradual entry process. This important transition phase is aimed to set up students for success for the rest of their school years, and often involves a variety of steps, communications, and opportunities to connect young children and their families with their schools, before beginning the first day of full-day kindergarten. All 2022/2023 Kindergarten parents are encouraged to connect with their child’s school to get specific gradual entry timelines.
