Role of Board of Education

Board of Education
Section 30 (1) of the School Act states: There is to be a board of school trustees for each school district. Under Section 113 (1)(a) and 9109B0, each year the Board must adopt a final budget for that fiscal year and a preliminary for the next fiscal year.
School Trustees act as a corporate board to establish policies which govern a school district. In School District No. 20 the Board is comprised of nine elected citizens. Trustee elections are held every four years in conjunction with municipal elections.
The board welcomes comments and suggestions from the community during the school year.
