POST SECONDARY STUDENT SUPPORT PROGRAM

Aanii, Boozhoo!

 

 

The Sagamok Anishnawbek Post-Secondary Student Support Program is a confirmation that “Education is an inherent Aboriginal and Treaty / Status Right.” It is the confirmation and recognition that post-secondary funding and assistance is a fundamental component of these rights. Further, it is the realization of a community’s right to assert their belief in “learning as a lifelong process aimed at the development of the whole person and community.”

Learning and the pursuit of quality education are not limited to conventional activities but reach into a more meaningful approach that reflects experiential and cultural opportunities. It is this holistic approach to learning that guides and directs the vision of the Sagamok Administration, Education Committee, Director of Education, and Post-Secondary Student Support Workers in their goal to deliver relevant services to the Sagamok Anishnawbek students.

The purpose of this policy is to provide students with information about the Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP) administered through the Sagamok Anishnawbek Education Unit.

The Priority of the Post-Secondary Student Support Program is to provide support and assistance to those individuals who have not accessed any support from the Post-Secondary Student Support Program. However, all decisions will be based on the availability of funds.

To ensure the effectiveness of this policy, policy changes are necessary and every attempt is made to notify the student of changes, however; it is ultimately the student’s responsibility, to ask for current information and/or clarification regarding their educational assistance. Their assigned Post-Secondary Student Support Worker will gladly assist them with any questions or concerns.

Should students access the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) to finance their educational endeavors; then students must understand that any loans received will not be reimbursed by the Sagamok Anishnawbek Education Unit.
