Community gatherings provide rich discussions - Please click on this title to reply.

The development of the Enhancement Agreement includes holding community gatherings to hear the voices of all stakeholders. The data will be used to increase knowledge and respect for Aboriginal culture, language and history in the district and to establish goals for our Aboriginal students. Please take a moment to help us gather relevant data:
1. Is there more information you would like about the Enhancement Agreement process?
2. What are your views on how Aboriginal culture, history and traditions should be introduced in a school district?
3. Ultimately, we want to increase the graduation rates across British Columbia. What are we doing for Aboriginal students that is successful in the district?

Education for Aboriginals gets a failing grade - Click on title to add your comments

Typically, high school graduation rates for Aboriginal students are far below that of Non-Aboriginal students. If our goal as community members is to pave the way for a successful future for Aboriginal students, the first step must be to identify what success looks like for each and every community.

We are interested in your views:
1. What does success look like for our children?
2. What do we need to do to achieve the success we want?
3. How will we know when we are successful?
