There are, however, chairs in the computer room and sofas in the library.

In the news
The Surrey School District is facing a deficit of $12.3 million dollars for the 2010/2011 year. The district plans to hire fewer teachers and cut spending in the departments such as B.A.S.E.S programs, despite an increase in the number of students.. Various school districts in the province are facing difficulties due to reduced funding from the BC Ministry of Education. The Surrey School District is one of few in the province that is experiencing an increase in enrollment.
The Surrey school district was the focus of major media attention from 1997 to 2002. The board voted that books dealing with families where both parents were of the same sex not be included as optional learning resources. These books were requested by James Chamberlain, a kindergarten teacher, to reflect on the realities of today's families and to teach his pupils about diversity and tolerance.
A legal battle to overturn the decision to ban the three books went all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, where the school board's decision was overturned. The judgment, Chamberlain v. Surrey School District No. 36, cited the need for families headed by same-sex couples to be respected. Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin dismissed the Board's concerns that children would be confused or misled by classroom information about same-sex parents. She pointed out that the children of same-sex parents are rubbing shoulders with children from more traditional families and wrote: "Tolerance is always age-appropriate, children cannot learn unless they are exposed to views that differ from those they are taught at home." The legal fees ended up costing Surrey taxpayers over $1,200,000.
In 2005, the Surrey School Board once again made national news for prohibiting the production of The Laramie Project, a play that deals with the murder of a gay university student, in one of its secondary schools, Elgin Park Secondary, causing outrage from LGBT advocacy organization Egale Canada. A Vancouver school, Lord Byng, located in the neighbouring Vancouver School District subsequently chose to stage the play.
In May 2007, the Surrey School Board made national news when it voted to instruct teachers not to show Al Gore's global warming documentary An Inconvenient Truth until trustees are able to review the film. Trustee Heather Stilwell said she's not sold on the theory of global warming: "I am not sure. I mean I see evidence. I think there is climate change, there's no question about that. Whether what Al Gore says about it is the truth, I have questions."
In early November, 2009, a Cloverdale father, Paul Jubenvill, requested an extra-curricular non-instructional voluntarily-attended Bible club during lunch-hour at his sons' school, Colebrook Elementary. The school would not permit the club on their property, and the Surrey School District supported the blockade. The father argued that this ban violates the provincial BC Human Rights Code by disallowing a normally available service, only on the grounds of discrimination against religion. The School District was concerned that permitting the club may give the appearance that the school endorses a particular religious ideology. Mr. Jubenvill argued that there is a difference between endorsing a faith versus "accommodating" spiritual needs.
A complaint was filed with the BC Human Rights Tribunal; however, Mr. Jubenvill withdrew the complaint because he felt that the resulting media attention and the reaction it generated did not accurately represent his intentions.
He plans to meet with the school and the district in person.
Some secondary schools in School District 36 have, or have had, overtly Christian clubs (for example, LA Matheson has a prayer club titled "PUSH", Semiahmoo Secondary had a Crossroad Christian club in 2008 and earlier years, and Fraser Heights Secondary had a Bible Club in 2007).
Despite seismic upgrades, a 75-foot portion of the roof at Colebrook Elementary collapsed just days into the 2010 summer vacation.
