Welcome! Wachiya! Bonjour!


Chinskuumitin (thank you) for visiting our Cree School Board (CSB) website. Here you will find stories about activities involving our students, teachers, and staff; you will also find our public reports, such as the Strategic Action Plan 2016-21, and the various Annual Reports. Our website also lists each of our nine communities, and you will find contact information for each of the schools in each. Of course we also acknowledge a tenth community, Washaw Sibi, as it moves towards formal status as a community of Eeyou/Eenou Istchee. As you may know, our services extend beyond the youth sector to adult students and post-secondary students. There are sections devoted to each of the sectors to help you navigate to the area you need. I wish you well as you browse through our offerings. If I can help answer your questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!


Thank you for your interest in the Cree School Board!
