Exploring Meaningful Ways to Engage Parents of Indigenous Students

This presentation draws on data from interviews and focus groups with 201 Indigenous students and teachers and parents of Indigenous students connected to one Alberta school division to explore how to engage parents of Indigenous students in meaningful ways.

Specifically, this presentation will consider experiences and perspectives related to family-school interactions as well as promising practices to foster meaningful relationships between Indigenous families and schools, and how this learning can be extended into the work of school councils.
