Role and duties of the elected Board of Trustees

Sound decision-making by local representatives is essential to student success. When elected, Trustees become members of our school board and provide an important link between local communities and the school board, bringing the issues and concerns of their constituents to board discussions. Your Trustees have a responsibility…

  • To act as stewards of Catholic Education by ensuring that:
    • gospel values are embedded in all policies and practices
    • provincial curriculum is taught by Catholic teachers from
    • a uniquely Catholic perspective and support is provided for faith formation of students and staff
    • active collaboration is undertaken with our Catholic community to strengthen the Home/School/Parish relationship
  • To develop a shared vision and multi-year strategic plan promoting student achievement and attainment of the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations;
  • To function collectively as a corporate board _ as a whole, they are a decision making authority;
  • To develop, maintain, monitor and evaluate policies and organizational structures that support and promote the system goals of quality learning by all, building communities of faith, and operating safe and caring schools;
  • To hire and evaluate the Director of Education, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the system (i.e. implementation of approved Board policies, plans and strategies);
  • To fulfill their fiduciary role, trustees provide effective and accountable stewardship of the Board’s fiscal resources;
  • To ensure there is a process in place to allow individual trustees to bring forward their community’s perspective prior to a corporate board decision.
