An overarching goal of the Department of Aboriginal Education is to take steps to shift the organizational culture at NLPS to one of Collective Ownership of Aboriginal Education. Collective ownership can be defined simply as every person in the system embracing and taking responsibility for the success of our Aboriginal students. This is a simple statement, but a very complex task.
