Governing Board

St. Edmund Governing Board

A Governing Board is a decision-making body established within each school, according to Section 42 of the Education Act of Ministère de l’Education.  

Governing Boards assist in defining policy guidelines and operating procedures to meet the needs of all students. They are responsible for issues touching on the financial, educational, and operational life of the school, including the development of school policies.

All Governing Board decisions must be made in the best interest of ALL students within the school.

 

ST. EDMUND’S GOVERNING BOARD

Our Governing Board (GB) comprises 18 volunteer members: 16 voting members and 2 non-voting members.  The 16 voting members include 8 parent representatives and 8 school staff.
