Education

Musqueam's Education Department seeks to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of administration; maximize personal academic success; and promote inclusive personal development in education.

What We Do

The Musqueam Education Department strives to make a positive difference in the lives of our students. Wherever possible, we integrate Musqueam culture into our programs. We are committed to supporting, teaching, and caring for a diverse group of children, who in turn will learn, reflect, and care for themselves and others as they prepare for their futures. As a department, we are responsible for many important roles, including:

Administering elementary, high school, and post- secondary education, which involves:

Assisting with school placements:

  • Arranging tuition for elementary, high school, post-secondary education
  • Liaising between elementary, secondary, and post-secondary institutions
  • Liaising with the Vancouver School Board, First Nations Education Steering Committee and other organizations

Administration:

  • Meeting and advising students, cheque processing, daily administrative tasks
  • Liaising with First Nations support workers
