The Building Student Success with Indigenous Parents (BSSIP) was launched in September 2004. The goal of BSSIP is to increase the involvement of Indigenous parents in education. The funding has assisted schools in developing partnerships and programs with parents and the community which will contribute to the educational success of Indigenous students. http://www.edu.gov.mb.ca/bssap/index.html
As a community, we believe that by working together we have the ability to bring about positive change for the entire community. This change can be achieved by recognizing the gifts within the community and working together. We can identify individuals in our community that have a strong connection to their Indigenous roots, and possess skills and talents that can be utilized to increase child, parent and community involvement in the school.
