Sagamok Anishnawbek has determined that it is necessary and desirable to establish an Education Committee for the efficient and effective administration of its operations. The purpose of the Education Committee is to assist Chief and Council in their responsibilities as they relate to the planning, development, implementation, and monitoring of the organization’s education program.

The Education Committee will make informed decisions through the process of open discussions, critical thinking, and problem solving. This approach to decision making will ensure a high level of accountability, transparency, and responsibility to community members.

Chief and Council shall normally not be involved in the activities of the Education Committee, but in special circumstances, and as the overall authority, shall have the right to reject or modify the decisions of the Education Committee. Council is ultimately responsible and potentially liable for all the decisions made within the organization, including decisions made by the committees it creates.
