Integrated Arts & Tech School (UFV Campus)

As many of you know, the School District has purchased the old UFV site next to ADR.  After two community consultation meetings and feedback through an on-line forum called ThoughtExchange, the Board of Education passed a motion that this new Grade 9-12 high school will have an arts integration/technology focus.

What does this mean for ADR.....

With elementary students supported by FG Leary Fine Arts and this new high school opening in the near future, there is a gap for middle school aged students.  To that end the Board motion also included a wonderful opportunity for some students from ADR and throughout the school district.  ADR will eventually offer choice classes for students interested in an art integration/technology approach to learning.  It is important to note that Rundle will still remain a catchment school for our community.  An application process for these classes of choice, much like the format for French Immersion, will be communicated at a later date. 

Here is the official motion, which was carried by the Board of Education on May 14th, 2019

THAT the Board of Education approve a new Integrated Arts and Technology school of choice for grades 9-12 located at 45635 Yale Road, as well as a grade 6-8 Arts and Technology cohort at AD Rundle Middle School, based on the feedback from the public consultation process.

This will be an AMAZING opportunity for our school. There is already a buzz from our current staff because this form of learning is best practice.  Students will still learn all required curriculum.  Teachers will use an arts based lens to integrate all subjects.  Many of our staff are already using this style of teaching because it makes learning relevant to the student.

Stay tuned for more information on the ADR Arts Integration/Technology Cohort. 

Please note: School organization for the 2019-20 school year will remain status quo.  If you would like any more information on this initiative please do not hesitate to email me at, scott_wallace@sd33.bc.ca
