Regional (District) Courses

What Are Regional/District Courses?

Regional (District) courses are POPARD courses that are hosted by school districts throughout BC. These courses are attended by employees from BC school districts/independent schools. Out-of-district staff may attend, provided there is room. Registration and/or questions about specific courses are handled by the host district contact.

Curious if your school district is planning to host a POPARD course? Check with your School District's Student Support Services Department or your District Partner.
