Approximately 900 took part in Pro-D day education
Not just teachers, but bus drivers, clerical and support staff and maintenance crews were among those going back to school Monday.
Approximately 900 Vernon School District staff took part in Indigenous-focused non-instructional day Sept. 25 at Vernon Secondary.
While teaching staff were the only ones required to take part, the district went a step further and invited, and paid for, CUPE staff to join the day of learning.
“It was a wonderful day of learning for all SD22 staff that centered around Indigenous voice and Indigenous stories, and how making space for those voices and stories can contribute to reconciliation,” said Charity Sakakibara, Indigenous education director.
