Role of the School Board
The role of the Board is that of involvement in the governance of the school. This means taking part in shaping and monitoring the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions. In addition, other functions are specified in the legislation.
The Board does not have a role in school management. This is the responsibility of the Principal and involves educational leadership and the effective day-to-day administration, supervision and control of the school and its staff.
Functions of the School Board
The functions of the school board include taking part in:
establishing and reviewing, from time to time, the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions;
the planning of financial arrangements necessary to fund those objectives, priorities and directions;
evaluating the school’s performance in achieving them;
promoting the school in the community;
determining, in consultation with students, their parents and staff, a dress code for students when they are attending or representing the school; and
formulating codes of conduct for students at the school.
The functions also include approving:
contributions and charges for the provision of certain materials, services and facilities;
extra cost optional components of educational programs;
items to be supplied by a student for personal use in an educational program; and
any agreements or arrangements for advertising or sponsorship in relation to the school.
