Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement
An Enhancement Agreement is a working agreement between a school district, all local Aboriginal communities, and the Ministry of Education. EAs are designed to enhance the educational achievement of Aboriginal students. An EA establishes a collaborative partnership between Aboriginal communities and school districts that involves shared decision-making and specific goal setting to meet the educational needs of Aboriginal students.
In the spring of 2007, School District 64 (Gulf Islands) and its Aboriginal community partners signed our Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement that was developed over several years.
