Metlakatla responds to SD52 budget decision to not pay for ferry service

The Metlakatla Governing Council is aware of the decision of the Prince Rupert School District to no longer fund ferry service to transport Metlakatla students to Prince Rupert for school.

While we understand the budget pressures facing the district, Chief and Council will be working with other levels of government and discussing the situation internally to find a resolution ahead of the start of the 2016/2017 school year.
