Track & Field

There are four sports tracks in Delta School District: North Delta Secondary, Seaquam Secondary, Delta Secondary, and South Delta Secondary.
All tracks — usage and physical condition — are currently under review by Delta School District Facilities.
 

Our district values safe, functional spaces for our students to strengthen their minds an their bodies.

Delta School District is working with community partners and all levels of government to address the degrading track and field facilities in Delta.

The District is keenly aware that there are ongoing issues with our aging sports tracks. For any large-scale renovation or project to be successful, there needs to be conversation, consultation, and consideration. It is also important that we work in concert with our local, provincial, and federal governments, as well as our school communities.

TRACK UPGRADE MOTION (pg. 4)

Discussion on the following notice of motion by Chairperson Dixon, seconded by Trustee Saip, at the September 26, 2017 Regular Board meeting:

“THAT the Delta Board of Education invite, in writing, all levels of government to meet to discuss opportunities for funding and construction of replacement tracks at North Delta and South Delta Secondary Schools.”

The rationale for this motion is the provincial government announcement of a new community initiative fund which could include track upgrade/replacement. As a result, Trustees would like to explore what support might be available from Provincial, Federal, and Municipal governments. With over 15,000 students plus their families in Delta, many residents would benefit from track upgrades. As well, tracks are also used by the community at large for fitness purposes.

M/S Trustees Windsor/Saip
THAT the motion be amended to read as:

“THAT the Delta Board of Education invite, in writing, all levels of government to meet to discuss opportunities for funding and construction of replacement tracks at North Delta Secondary and a South Delta area school.”

Trustee Windsor noted there are two schools in South Delta, and by amending the wording this would allow staff to determine the most appropriate location. Trustees discussed asking staff to do the same for the North Delta area schools.

M/S Trustees Saip/Kanakos
THAT the proposed amendment be amended to read as:

“THAT the Delta Board of Education invite, in writing, all levels of government to meet to discuss opportunities for funding and construction of replacement tracks at a North Delta area secondary school and a South Delta school area secondary school.”
