Director of Education Services

The Director of Education Services provides assistance to students/parents in every aspect of educational issues from early childhood education to adult education. Counseling students is the primary responsibility of NEC, but educational issues, matters, concerns, interests, goals and career counseling and administration are also conducted by NEC. 

Student Registration

Student registration takes place two weeks before the start of the new school year. This time is allotted for preparing the necessary amount of funds applied for. The staff of the Education Office would like to stress the importance of registering your child(ren) with this office. It is necessary for this office to receive specific information on each student attending school from Lake Helen Reserve. This information is
then submitted to Indian Affairs for tuition purposes.

Information you need to bring with you when registering your child(ren) includes:

  • The child’s status number
  • The school they will be attending
  • Grade and teacher
  • Emergency contact name and number
  • Alternative contact name and number
