Learning Leader and Graduation Coach for Indigenous Learners

The graduation coach provides targeted supports to Aboriginal students and universal supports to staff to ensure the whole schools is a welcoming, caring, respectful, safe learning environment that allows students to find a sense of competence and achievement in learning.

Along with High School SuccessLiteracy, and Mathematics, the Indigenous Education Strategy is a key pillar of the Calgary Board’s Three Year Education Plan. The graduation coach initiative is a key aspect of working to fulfill the mandate of the Indigenous Education Strategy.
