The facilities department at West Vancouver Schools manages school and administration sites across three municipal boundaries. Beginning on the east side at École Cedardale, it stretches to Bowen Island in the west and all the way up to Lions Bay in the North. Safety and health are the department’s top priorities, closely followed by preserving and investing in the school district’s physical buildings and surrounding spaces. Our strategic approach includes community partnerships, shared service agreement and a well-managed, pro-active facilities plan to ensure that our buildings will continue to offer a safe and healthy learning environment well into the future.

Other services provided by facilities include building and grounds maintenance, custodial support and snow removal. The facilities centre is also home to facilities rentals, the print shop and our purchasing and transportation departments. Whether renovating or innovating, facilities provides services to more than 7200 students and 1100 staff members across the school district.
