Please see the attached with respect to Indigenous student self-identification. Ensuring students and families self identify as having ancestry allows us to better address the diverse needs of all our Indigenous students.
Coquitlam School District 43 is committed to the academic success, cultural connection and socio-emotional development of all Indigenous learners. We have a high Indigenous student graduation rate, and are very proud of the work of all our educators and the Indigenous Education Department. We wish to continue this excellent work and improve even more. As such, self -identification is important.
