Working Together for Students

AVRSB Twitter Feed

Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year!


Bright and early on September 3, buses will be running, school doors will open, and the 2015-2016 school year will begin for more than 13,000 students and 1,500 staff in the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board. We have been preparing for this big day, and we hope that students and families have enjoyed a relaxing summer and are now looking forward to the first day of school, too.



Let's Work Together for Safe Travels To and From School


Safety is a priority when kids take the bus, walk or bike to and from school, and everyone has a part to play—students, families, bus drivers, and motorists who share the road.

With the start of a new school year, we ask drivers to follow reduced speed limits in school zones, to be aware of students walking or biking to school, and always stop when a school bus has red lights flashing!

This week and throughout the year, we also help students learn and follow all safety rules at bus stops, when boarding and riding on the bus, or when walking or biking to school.


Busy Summer for School Improvements by Property Services and Technicians


Thanks to the hard work of AVRSB Property Services staff and Technicians, it has been a busy summer in schools. Upgrades, maintenance, repairs and cleaning have been happening in schools across our region, so students and staff were able to return to well-maintained schools this fall.


Renovation Updates: Hantsport School and Wolfville School


Over the summer, renovations have been happening at Wolfville School and Hantsport School, with work continuing throughout the upcoming school year. Wolfville School school recently welcomed students and families at an Open House, and received many positive responses to the transformation taking place. Meanwhile, the first day of school at Hantsport School was moved to September 4, and students are now returning to classrooms that have seen many upgrades.

We are pleased to present our second annual Report to the Community, a look back at the 2014-2015 school year. This is a snapshot of our students’ achievements, major developments over the year, and indicators of progress toward the annual goals outlined in our annual Educational Business Plan.

We want to share what is happening in our classrooms, and how we are striving to provide the best education possible to students. In short, we want you to be a part of public education, and we want to be accountable to you.
