68. How to Empower Staff and Students While Growing an Inclusive Culture

District No. 81 (Fort Nelson)

This project explores team teaching and collaboration as a method to build more meaningfully inclusive practices school-wide – on the traditional territories of the Fort Nelson First Nation and where approximately one third of the school population is Indigenous. It continues in both bringing new staff into its culture and reaching out to other schools in its district to share, and possibly also partner and collaborate, in the empowerment of important cultural work of education.

With clear enthusiasm, and expanding possibility, this project’s 2021 Rural Schools Symposium presentation (.pdf opens in a new window) was gratefully received, as was this image of project persistence in pandemic times!
