Ministry of Education
Aboriginal Education Enhancements Branch
2003

Aboriginal Education within British Columbia has undergone policy, legislative, and conceptual changes over the last several decades. Aboriginal communities are exercising increasing influence over the formal education of their children.1 Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreements, also referred to as Enhancement Agreements (EAs), provide a framework to ensure that the needs of Aboriginal communities are reflected within schools. The EA process involves communication and the building of collaborative relationships. This process improves shared decision-making practices, and benefits all Aboriginal children by providing highly relevant education, focussed on their needs.   This resource guide is intended for use by school districts and Aboriginal communities that are interested in establishing a formal agreement to improve educational experiences for Aboriginal students attending public schools. The guide includes a framework for successful collaboration and outlines steps and best practices for implementation of EAs in British Columbia school districts.
