The School Maintenance Training Program (SMTP) was set up under the Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council (DOTC) to develop the capacity of staff located within First Nations to effectively operate and maintain school facilities. The focus of this program is on the upkeep and maintenance of the community school facilities, as well as the functionality of their public works department.
The skill level of the personnel in the First Nation communities must be at a standard that ensure the facilities are operated and maintained properly, and ensure the health and safety of users and beneficiaries.
objective of the program is to identify existing gaps, assess needs as they relate to building and maintenance personnel at the community level and to help insure that the schools facilities remain a healthy and safe place of learning. This training program is meant to compliment current technical support by providing training support for the maintenance of these facilities.
It is noted that that there are gaps in the effectiveness of the current community maintenance programs. The reason for the gaps in the effectiveness of community based building maintenance program vary from community to community but it is often affected by such factors, such as: operators skill level, remoteness of a community relative to urban centres, access to skilled outside trades and financial resources other than those provided by INAC.
