Community Education Liaison Coordinators (CELCs)

CELCs work with students, parents/guardians, and the school staff to achieve student success. The CELCs organize cultural activities, culture camps, Elders tea, on-the-land learning, and literacy activities to keep the students leaning in more ways than in the classroom. The CELCs also provide support and resources as students graduate and transition into high school.
