FNSB receives dedicated funding from YK to support operations, maintenance, program development

The First Nation School Board will be receiving $35M in funding from the Government of Yukon over the next 15 months. The funding will support operations, maintenance, and language and cultural educational program development, including the establishment of Yukon First Nations language and culture curricula. FNSB will also use the funds to support teacher training and professional development and undertake capital improvements to educational facilities. “This funding ensures that all students in our schools are provided an enriched learning environment that incorporates localized and Yukon First Nations worldview and sets them up for success in life,” said FNSB Chair Dana Tizya-Tramm.
