Open House: Indigenous Education Advisory Council

Open House – Indigenous Education Advisory Council (IEAC) Policy Consultation - May 14 and 22
Posted on 04/29/2018
Open House – Indigenous Education Advisory Council (IEAC) Policy Consultation
The OCDSB will be launching an Indigenous Education Advisory Council (IEAC), to ensure collaborative work with our Indigenous parents and partners, and the delivery of Indigenous education in an inclusive and equitable manner. We have a strong framework for community participation in school board decision-making. The advisory committees to the Board are an important component of this framework. These committees allow community members to bring an important perspective to our work by providing informed advice to the Board.
The IEAC would be comprised of six (6) voting members of the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities and up to four (4) non-voting members including a trustee, Indigenous education lead, superintendent and, where possible, an Indigenous student.  Indigenous parents, Traditional Knowledge Keepers, Elders, Senators and partners have been informally consulted regarding the purpose and intent of this policy. These same partners will be an important part of our formal consultation process.
We would like to extend an invitation to all parents/guardians to attend one of our two open house consultations in May in order to solicit input from the broader community. Information on these consultations can be found below. 
Monday, May 14th at 6:00 p.m. 
Confederation Education Centre
Tuesday, May 22nd at 6:00 p.m. 
Gloucester High School
