The South Slave Divisional Education Council (SSDEC) was established in 1991 to administer the K-12 education system for five communities in the South Slave region of the Northwest Territories - Fort Smith, Hay River, Kátlodééche First Nation, Fort Resolution, and Lutsel K'e. Each of our communities has a proud and storied past, steeped in northern traditions and values. The Council serves eight schools with an estimated student population of 1300 students. The Council strives to prepare students to create their futures. Fort Smith is nestled on the banks overlooking the Slave River on the Northwest Territories/Alberta border. It is one of the largest towns and is the most-southerly centre in the Northwest Territories with a population of roughly 2500 people. The community is home to the main campus of Aurora College, is the gateway to Canada's largest national park, Wood Buffalo National Park, and is where the central office of the South Slave Divisional Education Council calls home. Not unlike most northern communities, Fort Smith celebrates its cultural diversity. With a majority aboriginal population comprising Dene and Metis peoples, the town has a thriving cultural sector complemented by the presence of the Northern Life Museum. Fort Smith is the home of two modern and well-equipped schools served by dedicated teaching staffs. P.W. Kaeser High School is a grade 7-12 school with a population of approx. 250 students. Our student body is approximately 90% aboriginal (Dene & Metis). We are a magnet-community school receiving students from parents attending Aurora College. We seek to provide opportunities that will develop our students in Mind, Body, and Spirit.
