3 3 About the First Nations Education Steering Committee

4 4 About FNESC Established in 1992 Our goal is to achieve quality First Nations education in BC FNESC serves BC First Nations students and First Nations communities with respect to education, on and off reserve. FNESC provides administrative services to the First Nations Schools Association and Indigenous Adult and Higher Learning Association

5 Working Together in BC 5

6 6 A System Founded on Accountability The First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) is directed by First Nations communities and led by a board of about 104 community representatives that meet quarterly. The First Nations Schools Association (FNSA) is directed by its 130 member schools and led by a 10- member regionally-representative board. The Indigenous Adult and Higher Learning Association (IAHLA) is directed by its 40 member institutes and has an 11-member regionallyrepresentative board.

7 7 Building Partnerships The Association of the BC Deans of Education BC Representative for Children and Youth First Peoples Cultural Council First Nations Technology Council K-12 Aboriginal Education Partners BC Aboriginal Post- Secondary Education and Training Partners

8 8 What is the BC First Nations Education System? It is the education system developed by First Nations communities and schools in BC over the past two decades. It is a research-based system with strong accountability mechanisms and second-level services. BC First Nations political leadership bodies have voiced strong support for this system.

9 9 BC First Nations Education System Provincial Level Activities Support for all efforts FNSA supports Collectives of Schools Teams collaborating to promote school and classroom efforts School Level Improvement Efforts Crucial to support classroom level improvements Classroom Level Improvements The foundation for student success Data collection, analysis & reporting, for monitoring and accountability

10 10 Tripartite Education Framework Agreement (TEFA)

11 11 Background to TEFA In December 2010, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) unilaterally announced that new financial resources would be provided for First Nations education in BC through a new approach to First Nations education funding. AANDC indicated that this announcement was based upon the capacity demonstrated by First Nations in the BC Region to deliver collective educational support services and to establish strong, broad-based partnerships.

12 12 Canada s 3 Options Option 1 return to the national Band Operated Funding Formula meaning an approximately 40% decrease in funding for our First Nations schools Option 2 an implementation-ready tripartite agreement, with an oversight role for the Province of BC and a closer alignment of First Nations schools with the public education system Option 3 through jurisdiction, but requiring the application of federal Own Source Revenue policy

13 13 TEFA Development While FNESC strongly objected to the imposition of these 3 options, we reluctantly entered into negotiations of Option 2, with support from BC First Nations leadership. We negotiated a version of Option 2 without the requirements of provincial oversight / alignment After months of negotiation, in January 2012 FNESC, the Government of Canada, and the Province of BC signed a Tripartite Education Framework Agreement (TEFA). TEFA is a 5-year agreement. It came into effect Sept. 1, 2012.

14 14 TEFA Features TEFA recognizes the BC First Nations education system. TEFA significantly narrows the funding gap between First Nations schools and public schools. It provides $15 million of additional funding. TEFA provides more secure and flexible funding for second level services.

15 15 TEFA Features(continued) TEFA formalizes the education partnerships of Canada, BC and FNESC. It reflects a commitment to reduced reporting for First Nations. It also includes a commitment to develop BC-specific First Nations education policies and guidelines. In the event of an inconsistency, TEFA is to prevail. Parts of TEFA are still under negotiation.

16 TEFA & Operating Grants Manual (OGM) TEFA sets the foundation for a new funding arrangement for First Nations schools that is more flexible and more closely aligned to the financial resources provided to public schools by the BC Ministry of Education. With TEFA, First Nations school funding is calculated using the public school Operating Grants Manual (OGM), with adaptations. The OGM is online: 16

17 17 Operating Grants Manual, Basic Allocation Basic allocation for each student = $6900 for each eligible school age (FTE) student enrolled in Standard, Continuing Education and Alternate schools and reported in the Sept. count In addition, there are broad categories of supplementary grants

18 18 Operating Grants Manual, Supplementary Grants: Enrolment Decline Special Needs English/French Language Learning Aboriginal Education Adult Education Vulnerable Students economic conditions demographic vulnerability (e.g. Aboriginal populations) social conditions (e.g. children in care ) Educational attainment (e.g. adults without high school graduation)

19 19 Operating Grants Manual, Supplementary Grants: (continued) Salary Differentials for districts with higher average teacher salaries Unique Geographic Factors small community; low enrolment; rural; climate; sparseness; student location Education Plan Funding Protection Summer Learning See the OGM handout for more details

20 20 TEFA & Second-Level Services TEFA also provides more comprehensive, flexible, and sustainable funding for second-level services for First Nations education, building upon the unique First Nations school system that has been created in BC. Examples of enhanced services: More Regional Principals More School Coaches for Literacy and Numeracy Information Technology Help Desk Bulk Purchasing Opportunities

21 21 Second-Level Services: Examples FNESC and FNSA provide a wide range of secondlevel services to First Nations schools, including: FNSA School Assessment and Certification Process FNSA Professional Growth Process FNSA-sponsored professional development opportunities, including the globally-recognized Professional Learning Communities approach. * Note that Special Education is outside of TEFA

22 22 Outstanding TEFA Issues Administrative Considerations Documentation Language and Culture Transportation Operations and Maintenance Non-OGM and Non-Formula Provincial Programs and Grants Early Learning (K4) Program Support Support for Extremely Small (<10 FTE) Schools Connectivity Summer School English Language Learning Funding Student Support Services Adult Education Services Insurance Basis for Calculation Ancillary Services Indexing Clarification of Special Education Services Capital Other

23 23 TEFA Reporting for BC First Nations First Nations must still report their nominal roll to AANDC. Under TEFA, First Nations must also report on 8 performance indicators, shared with AANDC in aggregate only. Supported with DRUMS (Data Records and User Management System for First Nations Schools) and smart pdf forms Reporting to parents is also required 8 Performance Indicators % of students who meet or exceed standards for reading, writing, and numeracy Student attendance Teacher/student ratio Teacher certification Teacher years of experience Student/computer ratio Level of connectivity Administration of standard learning assessments

24 24 TEFA Commitments of BC to First Nations To consult FNESC about changes to policy, legislation or standards To work with FNESC to improve education outcomes for First Nations students To work with FNESC to develop a process for a First Nations graduation certificate, equivalent to a provincial certificate To provide reasonable cost access to provincial learning resources and supports and share expertise To consult regarding access to provincial bulk purchase initiatives

25 25 TEFA Commitments of Canada To implement the new TEFA funding model To consult with FNESC about proposed changes to federal education policy, guidelines or legislation To consult with FNESC regarding development of BC-specific policies and guidelines

26 Jurisdiction Update 26

27 27 Jurisdiction Canada, BC and FNESC signed a set of First Nations education jurisdiction agreements on July 5, Federal enabling legislation (2006) and provincial (2007) soon followed. For several years, FNESC has supported First Nations to build capacity and advance jurisdiction implementation. Jurisdiction financing has not yet been finalized, hindering implementation.

28 28 Jurisdiction (continued) In 2010, 4 years after signing, Canada decided to apply Own Source Revenue (OSR) policy to the jurisdiction agreements, and more recently, fiscal harmonization. First Nations leadership in BC have supported our position that imposing OSR is unacceptable. Our analysis found that OSR would cost First Nations 2% to 93% of their education funding. OSR mitigation options are unknown. The impact of fiscal harmonization is unknown. Language & Culture funding, governance and other items are also unresolved jurisdiction issues.
