First Nations, Métis & Inuit (FNMI) Education

Lethbridge School Division, through the First Nations Métis and Inuit (FNMI) Education program, continues to assist Division schools to be responsive to the needs of Aboriginal students. The FNMI program has taken a leadership role in southern Alberta in the development of "Best Practices" in urban Indigenous Education with its wide variety of programming and community partnerships within Lethbridge School Division schools with an increasingly culturally relevant education and learning atmosphere.
