The governing board is composed of an
equal number of staff and parent representatives. In high schools, two
student representatives are included in its composition; all are voting
members. Two non-voting community representatives are appointed by the
voting members. The principal takes part in the meetings but is not
entitled to vote.
The total number of seats for school staff must equal the number of seats for parents. If the General Assembly of Parents fails to elect the required number of parent representatives, a governing board cannot be formed and all powers and responsibilities of the governing board revert to the principal.
Governing Board Functions and Responsibilities
The Governing Board is an important way to participate in the decision-making consultative process for the school and the students.
The Governing Board in collaboration with all parties concerned, adopts, implements and evaluates the school's Educational Project. The Educational Project must comply with the province-wide framework defined by the Education Act, the basic school regulations and Quebec Education Program of Studies.
The Governing Board approves the proposals of the principal for the implementation of the basic school regulations, program of studies, student services and student supervision policy.
The Governing Board advises the school board on matters that are likely to facilitate the operation of the school and improve the organization of service provided by the Governing Board.
The Governing Board shall seek the collaboration of persons having an interest in the school.
The Governing Board shall encourage the communication of information dialogue and concerted action among students, parents, the principal, teachers and other staff members and community representatives.
Any decision by the governing board is made in the best interests of the students.
