In 2008 the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board approved the creation of a Native Education Advisory Council (NEAC). An official committee of the KPDSB, NEAC meets three times per year. Comprised of representatives from aboriginal agencies across the region NEAC meets to discuss aboriginal student achievement and issues relevant to aboriginal families and communities. Data accumulated as a result of the voluntary self-ID policy is also shared with NEAC. Members of the KPDSB Senior Administration team including its Aboriginal Advisor also attend NEAC meetings.
