WHAT IS A GOVERNING BOARD?
A decision-making body established for each school that assists in defining policy guidelines and operating procedures to meet the educational needs of all students. Every decision of the Governing Board must be made in the best interests of all the students of the school.
The Governing Board is broken down into two categories:
8 parent representatives with a two year mandate. Half the parents are elected at the school's Annual General Meeting each year.
8 school staff, including teachers, administrative staff and a daycare representative, each with a one-year mandate.
2 Community Representatives
