Thank you to all those who attended the annual Regional Sessions meetings to learn about our work and the work of our partners, and to engage in a meaningful dialogue about First Nations education.
This year we asked for specific feedback on the following topics: racism, student transportation, and experiences with Aboriginal Service Plans, as well as renewal of the Tripartite Education Framework Agreement (TEFA) and education jurisdiction.
We will announce the fall 2017 Regional Sessions schedule in the summer of 2017.
