Members of the Indigenous Education Leadership Table (IELT) met for the first time on Wednesday with the new SD57 Board of Education and SD57 senior staff members. The IELT is comprised of representatives of both the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation (LTFN) and the McLeod Lake Indian Band (MLIB).
The meeting allowed new trustees to share their history and experiences with the education system. They also shared their views about the Special Advisors Report and how SD57 and the IELT should move forward. Members of both groups expressed confidence the two groups can continue to work on and resolve some the key challenges faced by Indigenous learners in the district. The two groups will continue to meet monthly on a governance-to-governance basis.
SD 57 greatly appreciates the opportunity to work together with these partners in learning.
