About School District 91

Nechako Lakes School District gratefully acknowledges that we are situated on the traditional territories of fourteen First Nations representing the Dakelh, Nedut’en and Wet’suwet’en peoples. The school district encompasses five municipalities: the Districts of Fort St. James and Vanderhoof and the Villages of Fraser Lake, Burns Lake and Granisle. The District is committed to continuous improvement and success of each learner through the implementation of evidence-informed practices that enhance student learning, inclusivity and equity of outcomes.

Our region has been traditionally reliant on forestry, mining, and agriculture but has seen an emerging tourism sector over the last decade. This large geographic region has a population of just under 40,000 people; and, in the 2022 / 23 school year the district served 3532 students, with almost 40% of learners being Indigenous.

Each of our communities has experienced declining enrolment for several years; and we are now predicting stabilization across the region. We operate a total of 18 schools in our communities. In addition to the community schools, SD91 also operates EBUS Academy, a non-standard, Provincial Online Learning School (POLS) that enrolls several thousand full and part-time students. EBUS is one of the most established and largest online schools in British Columbia serving families and students across the province.
