SD10’s Indigenous Education Program provides culturally relevant programming and services to the 20% of students of Indigenous ancestry in the district. Our enhanced services are intended to create pathways to success for every student of Indigenous ancestry within our schools.
These programs and services are in congruence with the Equity in Action Plan, which was developed collaboratively in 2022, and is built on the foundation of mutual respect, understanding and collective ownership over the success of students of Indigenous ancestry. The Equity in Action Plan outlines the following intentions:
- To increase Indigenous learners’ connection to school and community with a sense of place and belonging that supports and reflects Indigenous cultural values and perspectives.
- To increase the knowledge and understanding of Indigenous history, traditions and cultures for all learners, supported by the wider school and community.
- To enhance academic achievement of all Indigenous learners.
Working collaboratively with school and District staff, Indigenous Education staff provide ongoing services to our students of Indigenous ancestry that support the goals of the Enhancement Agreement and students long term success.
