Rocky Mountain School District No. 6


Our Commitment to Accessibility

Accessibility refers to the degree of ease with which people with disabilities can use and enjoy something such as a device, service, or place. At Rocky Mountain School District No. 6, we are committed to providing an environment that is accessible and practical for all members of our diverse community. We recognize the importance of conscious planning, design, and effort in ensuring that barriers are removed, and accessibility is increased.

Our School District is committed to working collaboratively with the community to provide equitable treatment for people with disabilities in a way that respects their dignity. To achieve this goal, we have outlined the following commitments:

  • Engage with staff, community members and people with disabilities in the development and review of its accessibility plan.
  • Ensure that our school board policies and procedures align with the principles of accessibility.
  • Improve access to facilities, policies, programs, practices, and services for students, staff, parents/guardians, volunteers, and community members.
  • Continually improve accessibility for people with disabilities in our school community. 

Accessibility Committee

Under the Accessible B.C. Act, organizations must establish an Accessibility Committee to assist with identifying and preventing barriers to individuals in or interacting with the organization. The purpose of the accessibility committee is to work collaboratively to assess and improve accessibility within our organization, focusing on the experiences of individuals with disabilities while encompassing the whole community. The Accessibility Committee also advises the district on strategies to reduce social, physical, sensory and other barriers that prevent people from fully participating in all aspects of school community life.

The Rocky Mountain School District No. 6 Accessibility Committee Membership consists of:

  • Rhonda Smith, Trustee, RMSD
  • Marla Norquay, Teacher, RMSD
  • Bridget McGuire, Teacher, RMSD
  • Alan Frogley, Community Link Student Support Worker, RMSD
  • Kristin Insull, District Vice Principal, RMSD
  • Al Ure, Director of Operations, RMSD
  • Surrena Craig, District Health and Safety Officer, RMSD

Report an Accessibility Barrier

Rocky Mountain School District No. 6 has developed an online feedback tool that includes a series of questions about accessibility experiences that students, staff and members of the School District community can complete. Feedback can be anonymous, or people can add their name and contact information if they wish to be contacted.
