We have partnered with the Canadian Education Association’s endeavors to address student retention to begin identifying best practices. We have developed a student leadership program where high school students are encouraged to plan and deliver a youth conference that is only for our participating schools.
School administrators, teachers and teacher assistants are able to meet on a regular basis and support each other.
The college has always had an Elder’s Advisory Council that include knowledge keepers to guide the decision making.
Parents/guardians and community members have provided input into this proposal through the hosting of community meetings and completion of school surveys. We held meetings in each of the schools that have been involved and plan to host evening sessions with community Elders.
