Prairie South is governed by a 10-member Board of Education. Five trustees are elected from rural subdivisions, and another five are elected at large within the City of Moose Jaw.

The Board uses the Sloan Governance Model, setting the strategic vision for the division and delegating daily operations and decision-making to administration, led by the Director. The Education Act, 1995 outlines the duties and powers of the Board, as well as its discretionary powers. The Act helps to ensure provincial standards are maintained, while allowing the Board (and other Boards across the province) to address needs specific to our division.

Elections

School Board elections are held in conjunction with municipal elections or when a by-election is required. Ratepayers in the division, as well as all parents of children in Prairie South schools, are eligible to vote and encouraged to run for the position of trustee. Elections occur every four years. The last school board election took place on Wednesday, October 26, 2016.
