About the Event

The First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) and BC Ministry of Education are pleased to invite you to a jointly developed regional workshop to discuss Enhancement Agreements (EAs) and their role in ensuring greater success for Aboriginal students in BC.

What is an EA? An EA is a formal arrangement between a school district, all Aboriginal communities, and the Ministry of Education.  EAs are intended to enhance the educational achievement of Aboriginal students in public schools in BC.

The upcoming regional workshops will provide more details about EAs, including the preliminary findings of a recent review to determine how EAs can be improved.  The workshops will also provide an important opportunity to discuss with participants their local experiences, successes, and any challenges that relate to the development and implementation of EAs.

Please join us to share your input about this very important issue.  FNESC and the Ministry of Education value your feedback and suggestions.
