Ministry of Education invites discussion from parents, students and teachers.
The Ministry of Education announced a proposed change to the graduation program last Friday. The change would add a requirement for secondary students to successfully complete a minimum of one, four-credit indigenous-focused course in their grad program years. There would be no change to the number of credits (80) required to graduate.
Further to this announcement, the Ministry has begun a public engagement process for the new Indigenous-focused graduation requirement on its govTogetherBC website. The site will be available for feedback until April 22, 2022.
The Ministry of Education encourages students, families, and staff to visit the site and share their thoughts on the proposed approach for the new requirement.
