Accountability Statement
The Inner City Youth Development Association education plan for the three years commencing
September 1, 2009 was prepared under the direction of the Board in accordance with
responsibilities under the School Act and the Government Accountability Act. This education
plan was developed in the context of the provincial government’s business and fiscal plans. The
board is committed to achieving the results laid out in this education plan.



Foundation Statements
Introduction
This education plan is built on the experiences of 16 years offering educational programming to
Edmonton’s youth at risk. The term “youth at risk” is used here to describe youth who are at risk
of not completing high school, becoming involved in criminal activity, drug and alcohol abuse
and/or requiring continuous maintenance by society’s social system. This plan represents a three
year vision for the continued development of Inner City High School and the success of its
students.
Mission Statement
The mission of the Inner City High School is to provide inner city and other youth at risk
with academic and arts based senior high school programs that foster the excitement of
learning, lead to a high school diploma, and facilitate healthy behaviour, creative
expression, and cooperative working skills among our students. We exist to develop
independence and responsibility in our youth empowering them with their own desires to
become active, constructive, caring members of the community.
Principles
Inner City High School teachers and support staff base their daily practice on the values of trust
respect, cooperation and non-violence
ICHS teachers and support staff respect the individuality of all students, recognize the desperate
conditions many of our students are struggling to overcome, treat all students equally, and
respect their inherent dignity and intelligence.
Every Inner City High School student has the right to access the resources that create the
conditions for a pedagogy that responds to their needs.
Every Inner City High School student has the right to be provided with an education program
that responds to their needs and a right to be supported in the completion of that program.

Jurisdiction Profile

Profile
The Inner City Youth Development Association (1990) and Inner City High School (1993) were
established to provide inner city and other youth at risk with opportunities to break the cycle of
poverty, desperation, and dependence and become contributing members of society. The purpose
of the school is to provide opportunities for inner city youth to develop skills that can lead to
full-time employment, achieve a high school diploma, and prevent their return to a life on the
street.
Success and Recognition
             o One of the finalists for Edmonton’s Smart City Award (1998)
             o Subject of the National Film Board/Lorna Thomas Productions’ video Beating
                  The Streets (1998)
             o Recognized in the City Of Edmonton’s Salute To Excellence (1999)
             o Recognized by the University of Alberta with an Alumni Award (2000)
             o Rotary Integrity Award (Edmonton Strathcona Rotary Club, 2002)
             o Presented with the Alberta Centennial Medal (2005)
             o Selected as the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation Legacy Project (2007)
             o Recognized by Native Counselling Services of Alberta for Outstanding Service to
                  the Aboriginal Community(2009)
Demographics
The youth in our programs are usually without parental support, often in crisis, and from a
variety of backgrounds. In 2007 the following demographics profile our client base
  85 % were of a First Nation or Métis background
  90% have had contact with the justice system
  25% live in group homes
  85% live in unstable housing situations
Issues
Inner City High School offers an academic and arts-based senior high school program to
Edmonton’s high risk youth. We have spent several years developing a pedagogy and
methodology to provide education to this high need group. The population we serve is severely
disadvantaged economically and socially and requires a flexible, safe, and understanding
environment and a small teacher/student ratio. This situation presents us with a financial
challenge. Topping up education funding with tuition is not practical. Funding levels are one of
the major challenges that we face. However, in the past few years that challenge has been
mediated somewhat through access to the Special Needs Funding formula.
Trends
Over the past several years our school population has shifted from one comprised of students
who had experienced and wanted to leave behind street life and the behaviours associated with
that life to a student body that, for the most part, is still engaged in that life. Most hope to change
but have been socialized into a dysfunctional lifestyle. Generally, when students first come to us
they bring a series of unsuccessful school experiences, low literacy skills, serious behaviour
issues and habits that are not conducive to academic success. This situation is combined with a
deeply entrenched resistance to perceived institutional authorities. Most students are now
referred to us by probation officers, social workers, group homes, and through “word on the
street”.

Goal Two: Excellence in Student Learning Outcomes
Outcome: Students demonstrate high standards in learner outcomes.
                                  [No Data for Student Learning Outcomes]
*The percentages achieving the acceptable standard include the percentages achieving the standard of excellence.
Notes:
1) Student Learning Achievement: PAT Values reported are weighted averages of PAT Acceptable and PAT Excellence results. Courses included:
   ELA (Grades 3, 6, 9), Math (Grades 3, 6, 9), Social Studies (Grades 6, 9), Science (Grades 6 only), French Language, Arts (Grades 6, 9), Français
   (Grades 6, 9).
2) Student Learning Achievement: Diploma Exam Values reported are averages of Diploma Acceptable and Diploma Excellence results, weighted by
   the number of students enrolled in each course.
3) Data values have been suppressed where the number of students is less than 6. Suppression is marked with an asterisk (*).
4) Please note that the rules for Rutherford Scholarships changed in 2008/09, which increased the number of students eligible for Rutherfords. The
   history for the measure has been re-computed to allow for trends to be identified, however, jurisdictions and schools are not directly accountable for
   results prior to the “current year” 2008 results – thus, only an evaluation for “Achievement” is provided based upon standards computed for the
   revised rules.

The number of ICHS students that have contact with their parents is very low. It is rare to have a parent involved in an ICHS student’s
education or their life. Most ICHS students live independently, in group homes, live in ustable environments or move from couch to couch.

However, we plan to continuing creating opportunities and vehicles for community involvement in decisions about student’s education

Budget Highlights
This year we recovered from a significant drop in Severe Disabilities funding but the rolling
average that was part of our recovery holds its own challenges for the upcoming year. We are
optimistic for the future and Alberta Education’s Setting the Directions initiative.
We anticipate a continuous increase in enrolment and will add staff accordingly. We continue to
receive support from the Edmonton philanthropic community in recognition of our work with
Edmonton’s high risk youth.
Financial planning is focused on the need to provide an education to Edmonton’s youth who
have dropped out of the education system and lack the resources, skills and attitudes to return
Deficit financing is not a possibility and the level of educational programming offered is directly
related to revenue.

Highlights of Facility and Capital Plans
  Capital plans for the next few years will be focussed on the design and construction of a new Inner City
  High School and residence. We are at the tail end of concept discussions and moving to the design and
  construction phase. The new school and residence will be built by the Edmonton Oilers Community
  Foundation. We anticipate a structure designed to better serve the needs of our students, a welcoming
  and hopeful design that will inspire our students to overcome barriers and reach their potential.
