PlaceSpeak Topic Profile: Vancouver School Board
From time to time, we will be featuring some of the projects that have been hosted on PlaceSpeak to give you and idea of the different ways that PlaceSpeak is being used in the community.
Vancouver School Board: Our Future
Our Future is designed to be an ongoing web presence where community members can find a wide range of information about Vancouver schools. The website is the graphical access to a centralized data warehouse of information about Vancouver Schools.

PlaceSpeak provided an online platform including a survey and dialogue about international enrollment and cross-boundary applications. PlaceSpeak also served the City of Vancouver’s Parks and Recreation division by soliciting feedback on the use of public facilities close to schools and in neighbourhoods.
The directions obtained from this input were used to create a framework for consultation that will continue to occur both in public meetings and online through PlaceSpeak.
