The mission of the BCSTA is to support and advocate for effective public boards of education in British Columbia. Our mission is driven by the following beliefs:

  1. A high-quality public education system is the foundation of a democratic society.
  2. Improving student achievement is the key work of locally elected Boards of Education.
  3. The interests of BC students are best met through local decision-making with an engaged community.
  4. Providing a strong, representative voice for Boards of Education throughout the province is important.
  5. Helping to build effective Boards of Education by providing development, communications and support services continues to be a vital role.
