Board Policies

Policy setting is a crucial school board role in our system of educational governance. school boards establish the direction and structure of their school divisions by adopting policies through the authority granted by provincial legislation. School board policies have the force of law equal to statutes or ordinances. Policies establish directions for the division; they set the goals, assign authority, and establish controls that make school governance and management possible. Policies are the means by which educators are accountable to the public.
