The Chinook School Division is proud to serve approximately 6000 students in 62 Southwest Saskatchewan schools, with 1125 collegial and student centered teachers and support staff. We are a vibrant, progressive division in a vibrant and vast area in the province of Saskatchewan.
We are best known for our geographical wonders, our friendly communities, and our innovation and leadership in education. Located in the midst of our newly formed division are the Cypress Hills and Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Parks, the Great Sand Hills, Scotty the T-Rex, and the Grasslands National Park.
The southwest area offers its residents outstanding educational opportunities, excellent health care, shopping, and first class cultural and recreational facilities. Historical sites across the region will take you back to Chief Sitting Bull, the forming of the North West Mounted Police and the building of Fort Walsh, but that is only part of the story, because the history of this area goes back ten thousand years, and each visit presents you with a new adventure. Our area's economy is based primarily on manufacturing, agriculture, and petroleum.
Our division's aim is to continue to be educational leaders in the province providing unique educational opportunities, services and supports to all children in southwestern Saskatchewan. Our educational community believes and values collegiality, professional growth, authentic partnerships, and assessment for learning where improving student learning opportunities is paramount.
