Kainai Board of Education

Mission Statement

Within the context of Nitsitapi Culture and Language the Kainai Board of Education educates tribal members. Kainai schools offer programs to produce confident and culturally sensitive students. The Board seeks to have students become responsible natural learners, aware do their individual abilities in a metacognitive environment. These students value a traditional and contemporary lifestyle. The Kainai Board of Education shall maintain policies for the most effective use of:

  • Human and community resources
  • Financial resources
  • Provincial education consultants
  • Support services for students attending provincial schools
  • Innovative education practices

The Board shall work cooperatively with other agencies to ensure that students have access to further education and job opportunities which will encourage a quality of standard of living. (June 2010 KBE AGM Booklet)
