Governing Board

What is the Governing Board?

Westpark's Governing Board serves as the school's main consultative body. Composed of parents, staff members and community representatives, this committee approves policies regarding many areas of school life and is consulted on many important issues.

Who can be on the Governing Board?

Any parent may present him or her self as a Governing Board candidate or nominate another parent at the Parents' Annual General Assembly, which is held in September of each school year (see the school calendar on our website). Members are elected for a two-year mandate. Meetings are held once a month.

Composition

The Governing Board is broken down into two categories:

  • Voting

  • Parent representatives - we have 9, each with a 2 year mandate
  • At least 4 school staff, including at least 2 teachers with a 1 year mandate
  • 1 day care staff
  • Non Voting

  • Prinicipal
  • A Community Representative, if available
