The functions of the Board of a school are:
- to determine the educational policies to be implemented at the school, to assess, from time to time, the needs of the school in relation to the provision of buildings and facilities, equipment, funds and make recommendations to the Department with respect to the meeting of those needs
- to determine the purpose for which funds made available for the school are to be expended
- to make recommendations to the Department in respect of the use of the buildings, facilities and equipment of the school for purposes other than school purposes
- to develop relationships between the school and the community and between the school and community organisations
- to make recommendations to the Department on matters relating to the school
- such other functions as the Department confers upon the Board.
The ACT Department of Education, where necessary, enters into discussions with Boards and, where necessary, may give such directions as it thinks fit regarding the manner in which the functions of a Board or of Boards generally are to be performed.
In the performance of its functions, the Board complies with the directions given by the Department.
The Board of our primary school consists of:
- the Principal of the school
- 1 member appointed by the Department
- 2 members elected by teachers employed at the school
- 3 members elected to represent parents and citizens.
