ECHO

The transition from elementary to high school can be a difficult one – with the ECHO classroom, Louis Riel School Division makes that transition easier by creating an enrichment space for students of First Nations, Metis or Inuit ancestry.

Why consider an ECHO educational experience?

  • I value an Indigenous perspective to enrich my education
  • I value a supportive relationship with an Indigenous teacher as my primary teacher, advocate, and role model
  • I value a smaller classroom that emphasizes relationships, community, acceptance, connection, and opportunities
  • My parents would value working with an Indigenous teacher to support my education
  • I value a strength-based program that helps students like me to find my gifts and greater understanding of my heritage

A Grade 9 Echo Program Will

  • Discover and develop the gifts of Indigenous students
  • Frame a vision of students' potential
  • Increase belonging and community
  • Strengthen relationships between school and family
  • Enrich student learning and engagement through traditional teachings, supports, and opportunities
  • Support a successful transition to high school

Which Grade 9 credits will be offered through ECHO?

  • ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies are delivered within the ECHO program
  • Courses will run in both first and second semester
  • The additional 4 courses are Physical Education, Reading is Thinking and 3 electives
