There is a section on the registration form to identify Ancestry and Aboriginal Identity which you are encouraged to complete. Accurate demographic information allows our centre for education to support children and their families by acknowledging and celebrating our rich cultural, racial and ethnic backgrounds. This information also assists us when seeking out resources and planning supports to better serve our children now and into their future. Therefore we encourage all parents and children to identify their Ancestry and Aboriginal Identity.
Appendix A:Consent for Publication of Student Personal Information and Student Work
From time to time, the schools, Centre for Education, and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development would like to publish examples of student work, or personal information about a student such as the student’s name, photograph, and school attended. This is done to recognize and encourage student achievement or learning, and to inform others about the school and its programs and activities. Showcasing students, their work, and their achievements is an important part of school life, and is a very positive experience for students.
• Before the school, centre for education, or the department does these things, we need your permission. Please sign this form to let us know whether or not you give your permission.
I __________________________, consent to the school, to the Cape Breton Victoria Regional Centre for Education, and the Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Development publishing my child’s name, image (photo), grade, course, and school attended, including being photographed or interviewed by the media.
I also consent to the Cape Breton Victoria Regional Centre for Education publishing my child’s student work, and the department using my child’s student work (such as student writing) for the purposes of teacher professional development, and photos in a publication or on its website. This consent is limited to the purposes of recognizing and encouraging student achievement, teacher professional development, building school community, and informing others about the school and its programs and activities.
