Wisdom and Guidance Council
The purpose of the Wisdom and Guidance Council is to support, enhance, and increase school success for the First Nation learner in Livingstone Range School Division. The Wisdom and Guidance will represent First Nations interests in the design, implementation, and assessment of programs, supports and services that improve the school experience and academic success of First Nations, Metis and Inuit students in LRSD.
Formerly known as the First Nations Education Council, the Wisdom and Guidance Council engages local elders, parents and students from Kainai and Piikani nations to meet with Livingstone Range School Division personnel and board members to collaborate on issues and concerns related to student success.
The Collaborative Framework serves as a guide to strengthen collaborative processes between school authorities, parents, communities and other stakeholders, as they work together to improve the educational outcomes of First Nations, Métis and Inuit students.
The digital model of the Collaborative Frameworks was designed in partnership with Alberta Education and the Alberta Regional Consortia. The model serves as an implementation tool to support school authorities as they develop their own First Nations, Métis, and Inuit education frameworks and/or evaluate their existing supports.
