Truth and Reconciliation

School District No. 73 (Kamloops-Thompson) acknowledges that we reside in Secwepemcúl’ecw and recognizes the Secwépemc People as the keepers of their traditions and knowledge. The District believes that a relevant and engaging learning experience is necessary to maximize the success of Aboriginal learners. Truth and reconciliation through equity and inclusion are principles that are fundamental to the positive learning experience of every student. Ensuring equity is the foundation for improving student achievement and is central to each learner’s experience and engagement. Read the Aboriginal Education Report here. 

The District and representatives of participating First Nations Bands work in partnership to ensure that a Local Education Agreement (LEA) is implemented, monitored, revised as necessary. The committee also makes recommendations or decisions regarding programs and supports for students living on-reserve.
