Council of Commissioners

Governance

English school boards in Quebec are governed by a Council of Commissioners whose members are elected, or appointed, under the Act respecting School Elections.

At New Frontiers, our territory is divided into 10 wards, each represented by a commissioner. Our Council also includes our Chair, and four commissioners who represent our parents.
