WTCI is assisting its member communities in the establishment of Regional Education Agreements. The goal of the project is to establish:
- Comprehensive funding arrangements, covering all federal support for First Nations elementary and secondary education;
- Clear and defined roles and responsibilities for First Nations and First Nation education organizations, including applicable service standards;
- Mutual accountability mechanisms with clear objectives, performance indicators and reporting expectations for both the Government of Canada and First Nation education system participants; and
- Responsibilities for working with provincial education systems to manage the costs associated with on-reserve students who attend provincial schools and for reporting from provincial school divisions to First Nations and the Government of Canada.
