Office of the Director General

welcome message


Abraham Jolly
Director General



Educational success for youth and adults is largely dependent on how well we serve and support as a Cree School Board organization. The (3) three major focus areas targeted for success include: Youth education, Adult education, and Post-Secondary education. We continuously work to maintain a solid and effective organization through our departments, services, and schools. We move forward knowing we need to be focused on our purpose and mission as an organization. Our vision and foresight is “a well-educated Cree Nation”.


It has taken some time to see our Cree School Board entity evolve and grow over the years, but now is the opportune time to focus on our role and purpose within the Cree Nation, and that is to be a contributor in building human capacity for now and the future. The onus is on the Cree School Board to build a strong Cree education system that will allow our students to be successful academically, socially, emotionally and economically and to become successful contributors in our society in various capacities and competencies.
