Aboriginal Self Identification

In September 2009, the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board implemented a Voluntary, Confidential Self -Identification procedure. Self-Identification is a way for parents and guardians of students under 18 and students over 18 to let the Algonquin and Lakeshore schools know if a student is of Aboriginal ancestry.

The process is voluntary and the information gathered will be kept confidential. No proof of ancestry is required. Students already attending school can indicate their Aboriginal ancestry on the student update form or by filling out the Voluntary, Confidential Aboriginal Self-Identification form at anytime through out the school year. New students or students changing schools can self-identify at the time of registration.
