Frequently Asked Questions

Governing Board FAQ

Can a parent be a Community Representative on the Governing Board?

Yes, unless he/she is a member of the school staff. Community Reps and Staff Reps can be parents. On the other hand, Parent Reps and community Reps cannot be employed by the school.

If a Governing Board member has missed 4 consecutive meetings without valid reason, can the Governing Board ask him/her to resign?

Section 67 of the Education Act states that the Governing Board must establish rules for its internal management. However, because governing board members are elected, they cannot be removed on the basis of contravention to internal rules. It would be helpful to state in the internal rules, for example, "members will undertake not to miss more than 3 consecutive meetings". Consequently, the Governing Board can ask for the member's resignation. However, if the member refuses to resign, the GB cannot remove him/her for that sole reason.
The best way to deal with that member is to include an attendance report in the annual activity report.

The Governing Board feel they need to change the composition of the Governing Board. Can they do this unilaterally?

No, the School Board determines the number of representatives of each group. The composition is then confirmed by Board resolution. If the Governing Board wishes to change its composition, it should pass a resolution requesting that the Board do so. This should be done by the Governing Board during the month of May, so that the School Board can pass a resolution in June and, therefore, the Governing Board could implement the new composition in September.
