During 1991, the Department of Education of the Northwest Territories took a number of important steps toward its goal of ensuring the school system reflects the cultures of the people it serves. This report expands on the initiatives the department undertook in 1991. Following introductory statements by the minister and deputy minister, highlights from the Department of Education are presented in the Schools Branch, Advanced Education, and the Directorate. All regions are now governed by boards or divisional boards of education. The main section of the report lists the accomplishments of the 11 boards of education that deal with elementary/secondary education, and of the 5 regions that have advanced education institutions. The final section concerns Arctic College, the only postsecondary educational institution in the region. Among the accomplishments cited in the report are the following: (1) establishment of school-community counsellors who act as liaisons between the school and the community; (2) the use of distance education to offer a greater variety of courses to students; and (3) increased cooperation between Arctic College and the private sector.
