Schools Plan Signed

Malahat Life skills plan made by Malahat youth

An innovative local education agreement (LEA) was recently signed between Cowichan Valley School District 79 and Malahat Nation.

It demonstrates a commitment to enhanced learning objectives by focusing on Malahat students’ individual needs and cultural experiences.

Board representatives believe the new LEA will improve outcomes for the students, now that their families, the Malahat Nation and SD79 are working together to support them in their education.

Chief and council stressed the importance of having a ‘life plan’ included as part of the youths’ education plan.
