Ministry of Education – Press Release

SALMON ARM – Students played handmade drums today to launch a celebration marking the signing of a second Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement for the North Okanagan-Shuswap (SD 83) school district.

Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreements are a commitment by school districts, local Aboriginal communities and the Ministry of Education to work together to support Aboriginal students. North Okanagan-Shuswap's first agreement was signed in 2005.

The initiative has proven successful. Over the past five years, the six-year completion rate for Aboriginal students in SD 83 has been above 54 per cent with a high of 64 per cent in 2009-10. This is consistently well above provincial six-year completion rates for Aboriginal students.
