Mission Statement

The Tribal Education Department is committed to developing educated, confident, competitive, proficient citizens who excel in any venture they pursue while maintaining their rich Anishinabe culture and language.

Developed during the May 2009 Education Strategic Planning Session and approved by the Tribal Education Advisory Board on September 16, 2009

The Three Main Goals of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Education Department are:

  1. To strengthen the quality of education in the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Community.
  2. To provide leadership and support for high quality academics, cultural awareness, and language within and throughout all education department programs.
  3. To modify, update, change, and implement policies to meet the continuously changing educational needs of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Community.

*Developed during the February 2010 Strategic Planning Session. Updated and Approved by TEAB during the July 2013 Monthly Meeting.

The Education Department is committed to meeting these goals by implementing programs that gather, review, and analyze community data as it pertains to each program. This mandates program structure and implementation that is specific to an identified service need. The success of programming must be measureable in order to be considered such.
