FNMI - First Nations, Metis, Inuit Students
Programming for First Nations, Metis and Inuit Students
The Board earnestly wishes to continue to move forward with supporting the success of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit students in its schools. The Board’s objective is to work with students, parents and community partners to improve the graduation rate of First Nations, Metis and Inuit students so that it falls within the provincial range for students in general. The goal is to narrow the gap and have First Nations, Metis and Inuit students achieve on par with their peers. The Division supports First Nations based language and culture courses as well as the infusion of indigenous ways of knowing, histories and world views into its schools. To this end we have established a First Nations, Metis and Inuit Team to lead the work in ensuring staff and students have foundational knowledge to apply in everyday situations and engage in acts of reconciliation to create a better tomorrow.
