eLeadership Guide – Improving Success for Indigenous Students


Improving Success for Indigenous students within the Alberta provincial school system has been a long sought-after outcome. Alberta’s Ministry of Education, both past and present, have included in their business plans an outcome that states “First Nations, Métis and Inuit Students in Alberta are Successful.”

This eLeadership guide will examine research about system education leadership to improve learning success for Indigenous students within the provincial school system and provide opportunities for participants to listen to stories of practice on intentional strategies to improve success from a system leader perspective.
