What we're doing
The Department of Education has updated the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
(SOGI) policy. Find it here.
All educational staff received PD training on this in August 2023.
The Yukon Government is partnering with a private company from BC, with significant government funding, called ARC Foundation to give resources, lesson plans, and training to educators and implement the SOGI 123 Program in Yukon schools.
Contact your school council or MLA for more information.
The Department of Education is looking for your input
on their work developing a Comprehensive Mental Health and Wellness approach in Yukon schools.
What does comprehensive mental health mean to you?
What mental health services does your school provide?
What mental health services should be provided in schools and why?
What are the gaps or barriers preventing the delivery of these services?
How can well-being be addressed from a First Nations traditional perspective?
As we talk about mental health, what is the most important thing to you that you want to be captured and considered in the discussion?
Connect with your school council
to provide your feedback by May 15.
The Department of Education is working on several initiatives
that will affect schools in Yukon, including:
Safe and Caring Schools Policy,
Student Outcomes Strategy,
and Ready to Learn Schools.
If you would like more information about these,
please contact your school council or CEAY.
Yukon Department of Education has adopted new Student Outcome Measures and is developing policy
on the topic.
These actions are in direct response to the auditor's report from 2018. The learner outcomes have been developed with primary and extensive consultation with
Yukon First Nations.
Contact your school council for more details.
