The school districts of the West Kootenay Boundary Region and Selkirk College have formed WKBRN, a regional consortium that will provide improved services and programs for learners of all ages.
Improved services for the region include:
Better access to the delivery of courses via the Internet.
Shared information and resources to schools and Selkirk College Centers throughout the West Kootenay Boundary area.
Customized services and resource applications for learners, teachers, College administrators and instructors. The creation of better "pathways" for transition from grade 11/12 to Selkirk College.
Enhanced partnerships between the Business Community, School Districts, Secondary Schools and Selkirk College.
With the advent of the Provincial Learning Network (PLNet) it is now possible to build a network of information servers which will promote the sharing of resources and technical skills possessed by the staff of the various institutions. Lesson plans, teaching ideas, learning resources, school publications and student contributions can also be easily distributed over the network. – less–ZoomInfo
