Voluntary Self-Identification

Supporting Aboriginal students is one of the key priorities for the Algoma District School Board.

The First Nation, Metis, Inuit (FNMI) Education Policy Framework (2007) set the foundation for improving achievement among First Nation, Metis and Inuit students. The Algoma District School Board has met many of the expectations as set out in the FNMI Education Policy Framework.
All First Nation, Metis and Inuit students and their parents have the right to voluntarily self-identify. The first such measure in recognizing this right was to establish a self-identification policy/procedure to identify, collect and aggregate student achievement data for First Nation, Metis and Inuit students. This resulted in the development of the ADSB Voluntary Self-Identification Policy.
Since September 2007students and parents have voluntarily self-identified. Our staff has also been asked to voluntarily self identify.
