School committees are comprised of parents and residents from the
local community who meet monthly to discuss school matters.
The principal and the school committee form the leadership team for
their school. The principal is the educational leader responsible for
management, staff organization, student instruction and discipline. The
school committee provides guidance, direction and support to the school.
Committee members review and make recommendations on matters such as:
the hiring of principals, teachers and other school staff, personnel
performance evaluations, proposed annual budget and monthly
expenditures, proposed capital construction projects, changes in
policies, procedures, programs and activities, transportation of
students, and the short and long term priorities for each school in
Local school committees operate under an approved constitution and terms of reference.
Further information on the roles, responsibilities, and election of
school committees can be found under Section 17 of the Public Schools
Act of Manitoba and in the Resource section
of this website.
