RVJA Accessibility Plan

As a Prescribed Organization under the BC Accessibility Act (2021), Robson Valley Jr. Academy is required to form an Accessibility Plan. As outlined on the Accessibility BC website (https://bcaccessibilityhub.ca/), RVJA will meet the three requirements of the act in the following manner.

  1. Committee: To meet the committee requirements of the Act, RVJA is using the committee of Associate Member Society of the FISABC, of which we are a member, as well as a secondary committee of BC principals under the organization: BC Conference of the SDA Church. On a local level, the Emergency Preparedness and Safety Committee (made up of the RVJA School Board) will be dealing with accessibility matters.
  2. Plan: RVJA will take the following steps in the 2023/24 school year:
    1. We will do an initial assessment of the level of accessibility in our school building to identify strengths and needs. This will be complete by January 1, 2024.
    2. We will meet the requirements of the Accessibility Act by formulating this plan and posting it on the school website.
  3. Feedback: Anyone with feedback on accessibility at RVJA is invited to email the principal, Laurel McKay at lmckay@rvja.ca , or telephone 250-569-2414.
