The publication was created for the BC context, recognizing that effective hiring practices are one of the key aspects of operating a strong school. Student achievement and success depend to a large extent upon the quality of the staff members who interact with learners while they are in the care of the school.

The First Nations Education Steering Committee and the First Nations Schools Association are committed to supporting BC First Nations schools in the critical areas of school operations, including effective hiring practices.

While many of the concepts presented have widespread application, some information may be BC-specific.  The information is not intended as legal advice.
