Graduation rates and achievement outcomes for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students are much lower, on average, than other students in Alberta's schools. Programs, policies, and initiatives must be strengthened to increase First Nations, Métis, and Inuit student success and achievement.
Alberta's education partners are working together to ensure that students are knowledgeable, understanding and respectful of the rich diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit cultures. Honouring Indigenous histories, cultures, languages and perspectives, and strengthening relationships with Indigenous Peoples and communities within Alberta's schools contributes to the advancement of truth and reconciliation.
Where do trustee candidates stand on supporting First Nations, Métis, and Inuit student success and achievement, and advancing truth and reconciliation within school communities?
