Central Okanagan Public Schools Indigenous Cultural Program
*See below for a request form with a list of cultural programs offered.*
*Cultural Programming for teaching staff in the Central Okanagan School District only*
Indigenous Cultural Events Cost Sharing:
Indigenous targeted dollars will be shared with the district to provide classroom cultural presentations and whole school cultural performances.
There are up to 6 classroom presentations from Central Okanagan Public Schools Indigenous Education Department Cultural Program staff allotted per school. Additionally, schools can cost-share presentations (including full-school assemblies with keynote speakers, for example) from outside the school district. Please contact our Cultural Programs Coordinator, Kelly Andrews, directly regarding these opportunities.
If a school requests more than the 6 presentations from school district staff, the school will be charged in full for any additional presentations. Contact Kelly Andrews (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information about presentations from outside speakers.
All payment goes through Central Okanagan Public Schools Finance Department and your accounts will be automatically debited at month's end. A copy of the summary will be mailed to your school.
