      PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Plans for an all-aboriginal high school in Prince George have been given the green light by school trustees in the northern B.C. city.

      The school board recommendation now goes to the Ministry of Education for approval.

      The school will be launched under a three-way partnership with the ministry, local First Nations and the school district.

      School board planners say they hope to have the new school ready to open by September 2005.

      Trustees in Prince George say they hope the new school will help counteract the high native dropout rate in local schools.

      And they point to the success of Amiskwaciy Academy, a high school in Edmonton based on aboriginal culture.

      Premier Gordon Campbell endorsed the proposal earlier this year, saying it could help boost aboriginal graduation rates.
