Governing Board

Functions and powers

The Education Act provides for the sharing of functions and powers between the governing board and the principal. Generally speaking, the governing board plays a major role in determining a school’s direction while the principal oversees the quality of the educational services it delivers, ensures pedagogical and administrative leadership, and manages the resources that the school board makes available to the school.

Moreover, section 64 of the Education Act states that “every decision of the governing board must be made in the best interests of the students.”

Accordingly, the governing board advises the school board concerning any matter the school board is required to submit to the governing board, any matter likely to facilitate the operation of the school and any matter likely to improve the organization of the services provided by the school board.

Furthermore, the school board must consult the governing board concerning the amendment or revocation of the deed of establishment of the school and the selection criteria for the appointment of the principal of the school.


E.A., sections 78 and 79.
