The Reciprocal Tuition Handbook (updated August 2021) has been created to support First Nations schools in accessing Reciprocal Tuition. This resource is for non-Independent First Nations schools only. Certified Independent First Nations schools are exempt from applying for reciprocal tuition, as they are automatically eligible.

This Handbook provides a broad overview of the process for accessing Reciprocal Tuition and the general requirements for receiving this funding. The Handbook explains which schools are eligible for Reciprocal Tuition. It then outlines how interested schools can apply.

We recommend that people who are interested in Reciprocal Tuition read through this short document for an overall understanding of the funding opportunity. All of the forms and documents referred to in this Handbook can be accessed from the BC Ministry of Education website.
