School Act - Bill 10

Red Deer Catholic Regional School Division is committed to using the LIFE Framework as a guideline for the creation and operation of student groups that are comprehensive in their approach to inclusion and open to the exploration, in a Catholic context, of a variety of issues including bullying, sexual harassment, sexual orientation, gender identity, discrimination, justice, and respectful relationships and language.  The LIFE Framework is the result of a provincial collaboration of Catholic school jurisdictions.  Each of our schools may be organizing LIFE Framework/Diversity groups.  They will keep their communities informed as these groups are established by placing notices in their newsletters/websites.
