Alberta highlighting success stories in Indigenous Education

November 19, 2014

Alberta has released a series of success stories highlighting best practices in place in several provincial schools. Schools include St Andrew’s School, Livingstone Range School Division, École Springfield Elementary School, Ben Calf Robe School, and Bassano School. The schools are reporting that First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students are performing better than provincial averages across a number of grades and subjects. The stories feature best practices credited with fuelling this success, such as the breakfast and lunch program at Ben Calf Robe, the advocacy and outreach programs at schools in the Livingstone Range School Division, and the student-tracking data systems used at École Springfield Elementary. The school programs are supported by community and parent involvement, fostering collaboration between schools and communities. Alberta Education Website
