Governance refers to how an organization is directed. The governance system in Frontier School Division is a three-tiered system unlike any other school division. Parents and community members form the foundation of this system by participating on school committees, area advisory committees and the Board of Trustees. By legislation, these committees have responsibilities at their local school level and area level as well as electoral responsibilities leading to the election of the Frontier School Board of Trustees.
Details on the governance system in Frontier School Division, including elections and legal responsibilities, are provided in the policies in this section. The notes at the bottom of the policy page direct you to further information.
