July 29, 2015 Update to Program Administrative Changes
JW Sporta Ltd.'s administration of the Action Schools! BC program has now concluded. Please direct all inquiries to DASH BC at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 604-681-0600 local 220. Any new information we obtain will be posted. Thank you.
As communicated to the Ministry of Health and to the Action Schools! BC community, JW Sporta’s contract to administer the Action Schools! BC program will end as a result of a number of factors, including the need for a review of the program, at the close of the current 2014-15 school year.
As a result of the review, there will be no future bookings for Action Schools! BC workshops until the review is completed, and the program’s future direction has been determined. Once the review is completed, DASH will provide a further update here the Action Schools! BC website.
DASH thanks the dedicated Action Schools! BC trainers who have made the program a success by delivering workshops to teachers/students for the Action Schools! BC program.
