    Why is it important to provide consent?

    • We will be able to follow AES students into Ontario’s system and provide them with assistance and support.
    • A fluid transition of records between AES and Ontario systems will ease school administration and reduce errors. It will make transition easier for programming.
    • When we know more about AES students, we can do more to support them.
    • Communities and schools can capture accurate educational statistics for on and off-reserve students. This will help identify learning trends and needs of AES students that are both on and off-reserve.
    • Helps teachers to deliver responsive programs that meet Anishinabek standards
    • We will have accurate information to support AES students.

    How will student data and information be used?

    There is a Data and Information Sharing Agreement signed between the Kinoomaadziwin Education Body and Ontario. It indicates that student data and information will only be used to further the objectives of the Master Education Agreement.
