Governing Board/Parents’ Committee

Governing Boards

Each NFSB School & Centre has its own Governing Board as mandated by the Quebec Education Ministry. Governing Boards are made up of an equal number of staff members and parents. Working together with the school principal, the Governing Board plays a vital role in determining a school’s direction.

Governing Boards are responsible for approving and overseeing a variety of issues including: the school’s educational projects, implementing the school’s regulation policy, the time allocated to each subject, the school budget and the student supervision policy.

Parents’ Committee

The NFSB Parents’ Committee is mandated by the Quebec Education Act. It is composed of one parent from each school. It is from this committee that our four parent commissioners are elected:
• one representing the elementary parents
• one representing the high school parents
• one “at large”, and
• one representing the Special Needs Advisory Committee.

The Parents’ Committee provides a direct link between governing boards and the Council of Commissioners.

Besides being an important voice of parents to the Council, the Parents’ Committee’s goals are to inform parents and foster parental engagement. It has been doing this for many years by partnering with the School Board to organize the annual governing board training session, and seminars on various topics of interest to our families.
