School District 48 estimates it has about 210 more staff who need to get the COVID-19 vaccination.

In total, there are about 820 staffers in the school district.

On April 26, Supt. Lisa McCullough said that number assumes that all staff — not just teachers — eligible for getting a vaccine have already decided to get the shot.

"On the balance of likelihood knowing how concerned they are in our sector and how responsible they are being, I can't imagine that we're much over 200," said McCullough.

McCullough's update was given to the Sea to Sky school board in a special meeting.

She said that the province is hoping to have all staff for its K to 12 schools vaccinated by sometime in May.
