Officials at the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board (KPDSB) say they will be working collaboratively with the Windigo First Nations Council (WFNC) to help Indigenous students get the social, emotional and academic educational opportunities needed to reach their personal and educational goals.
A memorandum of understanding between the two organizations was signed on Thursday in Winnipeg during the tribal council’s chiefs meeting, according to a written release from the school board.
“We are pleased that we will be working in partnership with the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board to ensure the success of all WFNC students,” the council’s chief executive officer and council chair, Frank McKay, was quoted as saying in the release.
