Full Time

The School:
Opened in 2000, Stratford Hall is a non-profit, co-ed, non-denominational, independent K-12 school located in East Vancouver. Through the continuum of International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes, we strive to create well-rounded students who are inquirers and critical thinkers who approach learning with a balanced and knowledgeable perspective. The school culture at Stratford Hall is warm and inclusive and we work hard to build a strong sense of community between students, parents, faculty and staff as a family in learning.

Technology at Stratford Hall:
At this time, Stratford Hall outsources much of its IT department using a company called Rent-a-Nerd. Their team supports the IT infrastructure and support at the school. In addition, we employ students from the SFU COOP Programme to work with the IT team and to support teachers and students. The new Director of Technology will be expected to assume more responsibility in the future for the IT infrastructure. On the academic side, the IT Director supports educational programs which support the school’s innovative programme grounded in the IB and the CORE Competencies of the new BC Curriculum. This includes a focus on 21st Century learning skills and the embedding of Digital Citizenship across the grades. All staff are provided with devices, which include PCs, MacBook Airs and iPad Pros. Each class in the PYP has a 2:1 ratio of iPads as well as carts of PCs and Chromebooks for students to share. From 2018, all students from grades 6-12 will bring their own device to school with the ability to download school-provided Adobe Creative Suite software. The IDEA Lab is a newly developed space focused on Design Thinking and Innovative Learning Spaces. We use ManageBac for curriculum planning and assessment, SeniorSystems as our Student Information System and Finalsite for our school website and communication portals. G Suite is used across the whole school for productivity, communication and collaboration.
