There are three aspects to the roles and responsibilities of a trustee: the corporate role; the legislative role; and the community relations and advocacy role.

In their corporate role, trustees:

  • provide leadership and direction through guiding the Divisional Strategic Plan
  • hire and evaluate the Superintendent of Education
  • approve what is being taught and provide the necessary educational resources and services
  • establish the annual divisional budget
  • consult with the community
  • ensure that the Divisional Strategic Plan and Administrative Plan are followed and implemented  


In their legislative role, trustees establish internal operational policy and approve positions on issues of importance to the division.

In their community relations and advocacy role, trustees advocate with the government and education partners for the school division and public education. They also advocate with the general public around the importance of public education.
