Parents/guardians are asked to identify their children/students as being Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, Métis), or of non-Indigenous ancestry, during the school registration process. The choice to identify is voluntary and confidential.
This information is stored electronically and in paper form, in the student’s cumulative file. It is secure and access is limited to Prairie South and the SK Ministry of Education. All employees within Prairie South Schools are to adhere to Administrative Procedure 180 “Guidelines for Protecting the Privacy and Confidentiality of Personal Information” and “Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (LAFOIP)”.
Some individuals may be hesitant to self-declare as an ethnic group member for fear of being marginalized or because of past experiences. Information on a self-declaration form is used solely to help define programming and services to assist in the success and achievement of Indigenous students in and throughout their schooling experience. “Being proud of our culture and history impacts student confidence and creates a stronger sense of belonging” (Living Sky School Division, 2020).
