WATCH: Chilliwack School Board meeting live

The Chilliwack School Board of Education holds its meeting Nov. 28 at the board office at 7 p.m.

Earlier this year, the board voted in favour of recording its meetings and broadcasting them for the public to encourage participation in discussion. The views on the first two broadcasted meetings surpassed 1,000. They are broadcast live on YouTube:

The video will go live on this page at 7 p.m.

The Nov. 28 meeting is being preceeded by a pro-LGBTQ rally outside the board office. That rally begins at 6 p.m.

Items on the agenda include a presentation by the Sardis secondary agricultural program teachers, a decision on approving a McCreary study on adolescent health, and the budget and audit committee reports. The board will also decide on moving the learning services department to an old site in East Chilliwack, at a cost of more than $850,000, as well as creating a learning resources policy.
