LEA Agreement with Pacheedaht First Nation

Tuesday night, I traveled the scenic road to Pacheedaht First Nation to sign the Local Education Agreement (LEA) between Pacheedaht and our school district. Chief Marvin McClurg welcomed me, and my amazing trustees to his community with plenty of food and great conversation. Local Education Agreements between First Nations and provincial school boards have been a part of educating youth for many First Nations who purchase services for their students for several years. LEA’s allow First Nations to have a stronger voice in their children’s education. The signing of the LEA agreement marked a huge step, which happens only once every five years, to work together to provide the best possible education to Pacheedaht Nation students. I am proud to continue to build a relationship with the community, to make sure that all students reach their highest potential in School District 62.
