Current priorities

The work of ABCDE involves supporting priority areas of significance to the field of education. These priorities change as the circumstances of the field change, and these priorities often align with the work of our national organization, the Association of Canadian Deans of Education (ACDE).

ABCDE’s three areas of focus are currently Indigenous Education, Special Education, and French Education.

Indigenous Education

Working with Indigenous communities, educators, and partners to improve representation of Indigenous educators and students in the BC school system. Learn more

Special Education

Special Education responds to and concerns itself with accessibility in BC classrooms for all learners, inclusive of all abilities. Learn more

French Education

Both English and French are Canada’s official languages. As such, French Education is central to quality education in BC schools.
