Consultation has concluded

Welcome!

On behalf of the Vancouver School Board, thank you for your interest in providing feedback about the consideration to close QEA. This survey is available from April 11 to 29.

In January 2022, the Vancouver School Board Trustees approved a motion to launch public engagement into the school district’s proposal to close Queen Elizabeth Annex (QEA) school.

QEA offers French immersion to Vancouver students in Kindergarten to Grade 3. There are 71 students currently attending QEA. It is the feeder school to Jules Quesnel Elementary (JQ), which offers K to 7 French immersion programming. As a District program, the Annex does not have a neighbourhood catchment, rather it enrolls students from across the District.

Should the Board decide to close QEA, District staff propose that students could be relocated to either Jules Quesnel Elementary (JQ) or Queen Elizabeth Elementary (QE).

The Board has not yet made a decision on the proposed closure of QEA. No decision will be made until after the public engagement has finished, and the feedback report is presented to the Board for consideration. The Board will make a decision on the proposed closure at a public meeting no earlier than May 30, 2022. If the Board votes to approve the closure of QEA, it will take effect at the end of next school year, on June 30, 2023. This will allow time to support a successful transition to the new school for QEA students and families. All current students at QEA would be able to continue in the French immersion program, should the Board make the decision to close QEA.
