HDSB Trustees approve motion to ratify and support Charter of Commitment – First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education

Motion voted unanimously at Board meeting

Trustees of the Halton District School Board, as a member of the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association, approved a motion to ratify and support the Charter of Commitment – First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education.

The approval affirms Trustees acknowledge and value the core vision of the Charter, which articulates the endorsement of an equitable and respectful learning environment. This includes curriculum for all students that is inclusive of First Nations, Métis and Inuit histories, cultures, and perspectives, both traditional and contemporary.

The Halton District School Board endorses the OSPBA Association Charter of Commitment – First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education, which highlights the strengths-based set of values to promote success in First Nation, Métis and Inuit education in the K-12 sector

“Halton is largely an urban district school board and there are numerous Aboriginal students, parents, and community members who reside here,” said Kelly Amos, Chair of the Board. “By adopting this Charter of Commitment, it not only highlights current community relationships, but also welcomes new and future community engagement, which will support all our students, educators and the school board.”

The Halton District School Board believes all students have a right to grow and learn in an educational environment that fosters equity and inclusive education, and is a place where all students see themselves and their unique personal identities reflected and celebrated.
