The Mission of the Sahtu Divisional Education Council is:To provide excellent, culturally relevant, educational opportunities for students, who will experience success in a caring school environment and become life long learners.

The Sahtu DEC was established on April 1, 1989, to provide K to 12 education to all students within the Sahtu Region.  An interim board was established in December 1988 until the Board was established.
