Board/Authority Authorized Courses
School districts or independent schools develop Board/Authority Authorized (BAA) courses to help meet local community needs while providing choice and flexibility for students.
BAA courses must be authorized by Boards of Education or Independent School Authorities (boards/authorities) according to requirements set by the Ministry of Education.
Boards/Authorities wishing to offer Grade 10-12 BAA courses should follow the B.C. Graduation Program Board/Authority Authorized Courses: Requirements and Procedures.

In cooperation with the Educational Resource Acquisition Consortium (ERAC), a searchable BAA Sharing Platform has been created. Boards/Authorities can volunteer to share their BAA frameworks on the platform. Districts or schools accessing BAA courses on this platform will need to seek approval from their board/authority to deliver the courses locally, as per BAA policy.
