ABOUT OUR LEARNING COMMUNITY

 

The Aboriginal Education Department works diligently towards creating equity for our learners. Guided by the district's Strategic Plan, we work to achieve our goals in the following areas:

  • HONOUR DIVERSITY - Respect the strength of all diversities within our communities. Support the transformation of an education system that recognizes, celebrates, and includes Indigenous history, worldviews and perspectives.

  • ENGAGE OUR WORKFORCE - Foster school and district cultures that inspire and support passion-based teaching, learning, and leading. Create opportunities for every member of our organization to contribute to student success.

  • CREATE STUDENT SUCCESS - A continued focus on the essential skills of Literacy / Numeracy. Ensure Social Emotional Learning is embedded within all of our classrooms. Support the use of promising and effective teaching strategies.

  • ENHANCE CONNECTIONS -  Promote collaboration and partnership with all facets of community. Encourage our schools to participate in opportunities that strengthen our communities.

All of the Aboriginal Education initiatives offered through our department align with these goals. A document outlining our department programs can be found below.​
