Education Belongs to Community is a campaign to share information and thoughts on the importance of local and community voice in education. We are hearing overwhelming support from our communities. Thank you for adding your voice!
Education Is Our Future!
Many people are also taking the time to share and send us comments about the importance of education for the future of our province. So we want to share those thoughts and highlight the great things happening in education in Saskatchewan!
Help us share messages — an image, local story or quick message — about the importance of education and what makes you proud of your local school community:

Keep Adding Your Voice!
We also encourage you to keep adding your voice and let the Government of Saskatchewan know that while they are considering changes in education, we need to keep our school boards democratically elected and keep decisions closer to our communities, for the benefit of all students.

For more than 100 years, the work of the SSBA and its member boards has remained deeply rooted in the belief that every child in Saskatchewan, regardless of where they live or their personal circumstances, must have the resources and supports they need to achieve and succeed. Research shows that Local Boards Matter.
School boards are committed to working with the Government of Saskatchewan to ensure the best outcomes for students, and that the focus in education stays steadfast on continuing the progress we are seeing with the Education Sector Strategic Plan and the Student First approach.
This has proved to be a challenging fiscal year for the province and school boards have identified approximately $9 million in accumulated efficiencies for the recent school year. School divisions are dealing with significant challenges as a result of the current provincial fiscal situation and school boards are going to do everything in their power to ensure students are not negatively impacted by this situation.
