A representative from the Nation also works with the School District to review and revise the Local Education Agreement (LEA). These agreements provide funding to First Nations for the purchase of education services for eligible on-reserve students attending provincial schools from kindergarten through grade 12. The LEA is a mechanism for promoting First Nations involvement in the public education system and for formalizing a mutual commitment to improving levels of achievement by First Nations students.
