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.
The Parents’ Committee is made up of one parent from each of our elementary and secondary schools’ Governing Boards. As well, two representatives are chosen each year as Parent Commissioners on the NFSB Council of Commissioners.
The Parents’ Committee provides recommendations to the School Board on matters such as: the school calendar, the policy on financial contributions from parents or students, school closures, etc.
