Since its inception in 1996, the Aboriginal Education Board (AEB) has taken on the role of providing advice and guidance to School District 57 (SD 57) in Aboriginal Education. This partnership has resulted in many exciting initiatives such as the Task Force on Aboriginal Education, the creation of many support services for Aboriginal students, the Aboriginal Choice School (a BC first), and created a new awareness of the issues faced by the Aboriginal learning community.
