Board of Trustees
The Board is made up of the Principal, one staff trustee, five elected parent trustees, and a student trustee. The trustees are elected by parents and staff members every three years, while the student trustee is elected annually. The Board is also able to co-op additional trustee members if required.
The Role of the Board
The Board's responsibilities include governing the school and setting its direction. This includes the curriculum, staff, property, health and safety, finance and administration. The long-term goals and annual targets for the school are set in a charter, which the board monitors and reports annually on progress towards.
