Coast Mountains School District 82 is located in Northwestern BC on the traditional territories of the Tsimshian Nation, the Gitxsan Nation, and the Haisla Nation.  Our communities, families, students, and staff make up a culturally rich community of learners, grounded in the history and culture of the lands on which our school district operates.

The Tsimshian Nation includes two distinct communities, Kitsumkalum and Kitselas, in the Terrace and Thornhill areas.  The Haisla Nation is centered in Kitamaat Village. The Gitxsan Nation of the Hazelton area is made up of seven band communities, from Gitanyow, Gitwangak and Gitsegukla in the west to Hagwilget, Gitanmaax, Glen Vowell, and Kispiox in the east.  A significant urban Aboriginal population resides in the community of Terrace and many students of surrounding Northwest communities attend school in Terrace.

Our schools are located over a very large geographic area, from the communities of Kitamaat and Kitimat at the head of Douglas Channel to the community of Stewart, bordering on Alaska. The vast area of our school district is seen on the map on the next page.

We are very pleased to offer the Annual Report to our communities, our partners, and the Ministry of Education. Coast Mountains School District and the school district’s Aboriginal Education Department are committed to continuing its programs and initiatives and to monitor students’ progress and achievement through the Annual Report on Aboriginal Education.  These reports are submitted by the District Aboriginal Education Committee and the Aboriginal Education Department for Coast Mountains Board of Education School District 82.
