 Our Education Plan 2019-2020
Goal Two - First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Students in Alberta Are Successful.
  Goal Two:
First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Students in Alberta are successful.
The previous year’s FNMI acceptable standard on diploma assessments was 69.2%.
Comments On Results
In the absence of DIP and PAT results for the 2019-20 school year, it difficult to comment on the student progress and the impact of the Division’s strategies for continuous improvement. Regardless of lack of current provincial assessment data the Division will continue to develop and monitor FNMI students to ensure have the greatest opportunity for success. The previous year’s percentage of First Nation, Metis and Inuit students achieving the acceptable standard increased from 34.1% to 67.9% ↑ an increase of 33.8%.
The ECACS dropout rate for First Nation, Metis and Inuit students decreased to 8.0% from the previous year’s 11.1%. The increase in FNMI student population has been related to the shift in the student programming choices due to the COVID-19 school re-entry guidelines. The majority of the 27% increase in the FNMI student population have enrolled in the SOH online and home-schooling programs.
Key Strategies For Improvement
•Ensure that school administration and instructional staff access the SIS and IPP program analytical information to inform instruction and assessment practices.
•Utilize Vermilion Is Being Empowered (VIBE), and FSL staff and programming to support pyramid of intervention models.
•Identify and align FNMI history and reconciliation teachings across all grade levels. •Continue to support academic counselling services aligned to current programming and scholarship information for FNMI students.
•Aligning COVID-19 safety measures with new strategies to continue collaborating with First Nation, Inuit and Metis presenters.
•Promote the use of culturally sensitive instructional materials, First Nation, Inuit and Metis fine arts, guests, and experiential learning activities that meet the diverse needs of First Nation, Metis and Inuit students.
