Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation - Northern Gateway Agreement

First Nation Elementary and Secondary Schools

Approximately 60 per cent of First Nation students attend schools on reserve. In support of these students, AANDC provides funding support directly to Band Councils and First Nation education organizations. First Nations, or their regional organizations have responsibility for managing and delivering education programs and services in band-operated schools on reserve.

For students who live on reserve but attend provincial schools off reserve, AANDC pays the tuition amount that the applicable province charges for non-Aboriginal students. This is paid to the First Nation or directly to the provincial Ministry of Education, depending on the agreement in place.

Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation and Northern Gateway Public School Division have established an agreement for "on-reserve students (band members)" attending Onoway and Darwell Schools. This agreement was signed in 2012, renewed in 2013 by the Education Board.
