Now in Cree and French
Last December, we launched the Cree School Board 2016-2021 Strategic Action Plan and posted it online to our website where it is easily accessible for all. The plan outlines the four strategic themes we will work on for the next five years with a focus on student success.
We are pleased to make it more widely available to all of our readers by providing Cree and French language translations.
You can view the plan in pdf Cree [PDF format here] (6.15 MB)

Cree School Board is proud to announce 10 new youth sector graduates from the January and April exam retakes
Many of our students are only 1 exam or 1 credit shy of receiving their secondary school diplomas. Students succeed with support from their teachers and parents, but the bulk of their success comes from their own hard work and determination.
In March, a group of 15 students began their professional training in the Carpentry program using a new pedagogical approach.
For the first time, this 1,350 hours training program will be spread over 4 or 5 years. The aim is to allow students to alternate between traditional class instruction and practical work on a construction site.
