A School Board is required to be established in all schools, as set out in the Education Act 1999 and its Regulations. Groups consist of the Principal and elected representatives of the school’s staff and the Parents and Citizens’ Association.
Its purpose is to enable community participation in the formulation of educational objectives and priorities for the school through a school development planning and review process and to formulate a dress code for students at the school. When a School Board is satisfied with a school’s development plan, it endorses the plan and then the Principal submits it to the District Director.
In addition, matters of educational interest or concern may be raised at any time with the school Principal, preferably by appointment.
