The Northern Lights School Division No. 113 is a school division in Saskatchewan governed by the provisions of The Education Act, 1995. The division was established on December 21, 1978, when the Northern School Board was renamed Northern School Division No. 113. Another name change occurred on April 20, 1979, when the Northern School Division No. 113 became the Northern Lights School Division No. 113. The school division operates under the authority of The Education Act, 1995 of Saskatchewan as a corporation under the name of “The Board of Education of the Northern Lights School Division No.113” and operates as “the Northern Lights School Division No. 113”.
The Northern Lights School Division No. 113 serves a predominantly First Nations population located in northern Saskatchewan. The division includes students of Cree, Dene, Metis, French and English cultures. The division currently (2018) has 20 public elementary and high schools under its jurisdiction in various northern communities including Air Ronge, Bear Creek, Beauval, Brabant Lake; Buffalo Narrows, Cole Bay, Cumberland House, Green Lake, Jans Bay, La Loche, La Ronge, Pinehouse Lake, Sandy Bay, St. George’s Hill, Stony Rapids, Timber Bay, Uranium City, and Weyakwin.
The Northern Lights School Division is governed by a Board of Education, consisting of a chairman and nine members, each elected for four-year terms to represent the nine sub-divisions. The Director of Education, who reports directly to the Board of Education, is the chief executive officer of the school division and is responsible for the ongoing daily supervision of senior staff. The school educational programs are supervised by the Superintendents of Education. Other staff employed by the division include principals, teachers, consultants, administrative and facilities staff. The division is funded mainly by grants from the Government of Saskatchewan and property taxes. The division’s central office is located in La Ronge, with a sub-office in Beauval.
