Public Board Meetings:
At the first meeting in December each year, the Board elects the Chair. Public meetings are held once a month, normally on the second Tuesday of the month. The Board meets in each of the five communities at least once per year. There is a question period scheduled at each regular Board meeting. Community members are welcome to attend public meetings.
At Board meetings, school trustees debate and vote to determine a majority decision on educational issues. In order to make well-informed decisions at meetings, the Board encourages community input in a variety of ways. Ad hoc committees may be struck to consider specific issues in more detail than is possible in the course of a regular meeting. Decisions and recommendations made in Committee are presented at a regular meeting for discussion and adoption. Over the course of the school year, trustees meet with interested members of each stakeholder group, including parents, students, teachers, administrators and support staff, in order to hear their points of view directly from them. In addition, the Board encourages community members to provide their input on topics of interest.
