Langley Education Centre Celebrates POLS Status
January 30, 2023
The Langley Education Centre (LEC) is excited to announce it will be an official Provincial Online Learning School (POLS) beginning in September 2023. The centre offers flexible programs for young adults and mature students and will be one of 18 public hubs around BC that offer an online program or courses to students living anywhere in the province.
Becoming a POLS will allow LEC to continue to accept students from the Fraser Valley and will enable the school to expand enrolment to students throughout the province.
“With this new opportunity, the Langley Education Centre will be able to attract more students and provide increased flexible and personalized program offerings, as a result of this provincial designation,” says Sam Muraca, District Principal of Langley Education Centre.
“We are committed to continuing our work in helping adult and secondary school students combine their life experiences and classroom knowledge to meet their education goals,” Muraca says.
The Langley Education Centre is focused on working together for student success through learning, engagement, and connection. LEC aims to help students meet their education goals and find their passion for learning.
The LEC’s designation as a Provincial Online Learning School furthers the District’s vision as an innovative, inspiring and unified learning community.
“This positive change will help us meet our mission to inspire all learners to reach their full potential and create a positive legacy for the future,” says Mal Gill, Superintendent of Schools.
“I am proud to be a part of a District which strives to provide relevant and meaningful choices for students and offers learning opportunities in flexible and connected environments for all students, no matter their stage in life.”
Current and prospective students can begin enrolling for classes at LEC under the new Provincial Online Learning school model this Spring.
The Ministry of Education and Child Care announced its new online learning model, which includes Provincial Online Learning Schools (POLS) in 2022. The Ministry approved the Langley Education Centre as a POLS on June 7, 2022.
