Governance Policies

​Governance policies enable the Board of Trustees to effectively lead, direct, inspire and control the outcomes and operations of the district through a set of very carefully crafted policy statements and effective monitoring of them.

Governance Culture

The Board clearly defines in policy the individual and collective behaviour required to establish a culture of good governance. These policies establish standards for how the Board performs its work, including policies that define the Board’s job, its purpose and its accountability.

​Board/Chief Superintendent Relationship

The Board defines the degree of authority delegated to the Chief Superintendent, through policy, and sets out how the Chief Superintendent’s performance, and ultimately the organization’s performance, will be evaluated.

These are the Board of Trustees’ statements that describe the outcome the organization is expected to achieve for each student it serves. The Results policies are the performance targets for the Chief Superintendent and the organization, and form the basis for judging the success of the organization and the Chief Superintendent on reasonable progress towards achieving the Results. The Board of Trustees monitors the Results policies on an annual basis for reasonable progress over time.

The Results annual monitoring reports can be found here. You can find more information about the Results Policies here.

​Operational Expectations

These policies define both the non-negotiable expectations and the clear boundaries within which the Chief Superintendent and staff must operate. The Chief Superintendent is required to comply with the Board’s stated values about operational conditions and actions as set out in these policies. The Board of Trustees monitors the Operational Expectations policies on an annual basis for compliance.

The Operational Expectations annual monitoring reports can be found here.
