Schools and school boards work with parents as partners in children’s learning.
School boards work with the provincial education ministry to make sure that local schools offer all required programs and services.
School boards work in partnership with each other, with teachers, with child care and social service agencies, and with other levels of government to share resources and expertise in ways that build stronger, more responsive schools.
School boards work with parents, staff and communities to develop a shared vision about what local schools should look like, and then they work to bring that vision to life.
But most of all, schools boards work for kids. They work to ensure that all students find a warm welcome and a strong educational program at their local school. They work to ensure that schools prepare students for further studies and future employment, and to assume their responsibilities as citizens of their community, their country, and their world. School boards work for kids when they support programs that challenge the most able students, encourage those who may be struggling, or expose any child to new ideas and experiences.
