Batchewana Education Department Strategic Plan


My name is Amy Boyer. I am a community researcher. I am excited to be working with the Batchewana First Nation Education department on the development of a 5 year strategic plan. This project will include an environment scan, survey, and, community engagement sessions. I will be looking for your input through a variety of community discussions. These activities and outcomes will be developed into a report. The report will include a strategic plan with direct feedback from membership, visions, next steps for the continued success of the Batchewana Education Department and Batchewana Learning Centre.


Goals and objectives of the strategic planning process:

1. Host strategic planning sessions in each Batchewana First Nation community; as well as online
