76. Reimagining the Role of the High School as a Bridge to the Community

District No. 20 (Kootenay-Columbia)

This project supports student engagement through wellness, toward a school-wide initiative that promotes Core Competencies by way of a personal and social curriculum. In a cross-curricular approach to learning, and in growing understandings of trauma-informed practice, it aims to create a school-wide culture of community, service, connection and wellness, for which taking care of the community and building bridges to those in the community who can support healing will transform what school is, and what it could be.
