We are very pleased to announce that a renewed BC Tripartite Education Agreement: Supporting First Nation Student Success (BCTEA) has been signed, resulting in important changes that will support the growth of our BC First Nations education system.  Those changes include new funding commitments, new First Nations education commitments from Canada and BC, continuation of our Special Education Program, and important Nominal Roll changes.

See the August 2018 eBulletin for the latest BCTEA news.  Also see the draft BCTEA Presentation that is being prepared for the Principals’ Short Course.

Read the BCTEA (including schedules).

Our fall Regional Sessions community meetings will focus on details related to BCTEA, including the new funding for language and culture programming and transportation capital.
