VOLUNTARY, CONFIDENTIAL ABORIGINAL STUDENT SELF-IDENTIFICATION
The Ministry of Education has identified Aboriginal education as one of its key priorities with a focus on
meeting three primary goals:
 improve achievement among First Nation, Métis and Inuit students;
 close the gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students in the areas of literacy
and numeracy, retention of students in school, graduation rates and advancement to
post-secondary studies and/or to the workplace; and
 develop a high level of public confidence by increasing knowledge, awareness and
appreciation of contemporary and traditional Aboriginal traditions, cultures and
perspectives.
Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is committed to helping all students succeed in learning
and life and will continue to enhance programs and services that ensure the unique strengths and needs of
all students are met, including students with Aboriginal ancestry
Parents of Aboriginal students under age 18 and Aboriginal students over age 18 are invited to participate
in a voluntary, confidential student self-identification process, regardless of status. No proof of status is
required. By self identifying, you will assist us to better program for Aboriginal students’ progress and
success. Together we can better design education programs and services that ensure all students,
including First Nation, Métis and Inuit students, have the opportunities and resources needed to reach their
goals.
