Ontario School District Board Responsibilities

As per, Board Policy BA; The Board is responsible to the people for whose benefit the district has been established. Further, the Board’s current decisions will influence the future course of education in the Ontario schools. By virtue of this responsibility, the Board and each of its members must look to the future and to the needs of all district citizens.
This requires a comprehensive perspective and long-range plan in addition to addressing immediate problems.
The Board’s primary responsibility is to establish policies, purposes and programs and procedures which will best produce educational achievement.
The Board is charged with accomplishing this while also being responsible for wise management of available resources. The Board must fulfill these responsibilities by functioning primarily as a legislative body which formulates and adopts policy, by selecting an executive officer to implement policy and by evaluating the results.
Further, it must carry out its functions openly and seek the involvement of students, staff, and the public during its decision-making processes. In accordance with these principles, the Board, through its operations, will use the following guidelines to:
1. Concentrate the Board’s collective effort on policy-making and planning responsibilities;
2. Formulate Board policies that best serve each student’s educational interests;
3. Provide the superintendent with sufficient and adequate guidelines for implementing Board policies;
4. Maintain effective communication with the students, staff, and the public to maintain awareness of attitudes, opinions, desires, and ideas;
5. Conduct Board business openly, soliciting and encouraging broad-based involvement of the students, staff, and the public in the Board’s decision-making processes.
We appreciate the time and effort our Board put forward into serving our students and staff.
