This Board Policy Handbook has been developed to highlight and support the very important governance function of the Board. In addition to clearly defining the role of the Board, the role of the Director of Education and the delegation of authority from the Board to the Director of Education, it includes the following as policies:
1. Foundational statements which provide guidance and direction for all activities within the Division;
2. Directions for how the Board itself is to function and how individual trustees are to conduct themselves; how Board committees and representatives are to function;
3. Statements as to how appeals and hearings will be conducted;
4. Non-delegable matters such as policy-making and school closures; and
5. Specific matters which the Board has chosen not to delegate to the Director of Education.
This Board Policy Handbook is intended to be supplemented by an Administrative Procedures Manual; the primary written document by which the Director of Education directs staff. The Manual is, and shall remain, entirely consistent with this Handbook.
The development of two separate and distinct documents is meant to reinforce the distinction in the Division between the Board’s responsibility to govern and the Director of Education’s executive or administrative duties.
Please note that the electronic versions of both the Board Policy Handbook and the Administrative Procedures Manual, as well as any other handbooks/manuals referenced, are always the most current documents available.
