First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Program in the Grande Prairie Public School District
Building community relationships and highlighting local resources to help support the inclusion of Indigenous knowledge in Grande Prairie’s pre-K to grade 12 public classrooms. A critical component of this happens outside of the classroom via FNMI Family Outreach Workers by being available to help address possible barriers to education. This success in this piece of the FNMI Program is that family enhancement work is being done; working with a family as a whole. This is key to relationship building within the community and building connections within the community because the community is based on families.
