This resource is intended to help First Nations and First Nations schools in British Columbia consider issues related to student attendance at school, including why attendance is an important issue, some of the reasons why students might not be in school, and what can be done to help.

It is hoped that the information will be helpful to school staff, community members who support students, First Nations Parents Clubs, and any other people who support First Nations students.

A Toolkit for Raising the Attendance Rates of First Nations Students in BC – Draft (2020) was created by the First Nations Education Steering Committee and First Nations Schools Association.

This toolkit has been informed by participants in two focus group meetings.  The feedback shared has been incorporated into this document and is greatly appreciated.
