There are many questions that families have. Here are some frequently asked questions from Aboriginal parents and families.
First Step: Identify your children as having Aboriginal Ancestry.
You need to ensure that you have declared your children as having Aboriginal Ancestry on their school registration form.
No, you only need to self declare that your child or children in your care have Aboriginal ancestry and there is no other proof needed.
The Ministry of Education Requires that we consult with each family regarding their children in our Aboriginal Program. Each student or family needs a consultation form from our department so that we know that you are aware of our programs and that you want services from our department. We may consult with you by phone or by form, this is a yearly process.
