Governing Board

The Beechwood Governing Board plays an important decisional role in the school. Parents are encouraged to sit on this "executive committee", which is also made up of staff and community representatives. The principal also plays an important role in the Governing Board but does not vote. The election of the new members must take place before September 30th. The chairperson (who must be a parent representative) is elected by all voting members of the Governing Board.

Meetings are held once a month in the evening. The Beechwood Governing Board may consist of:

7 Parent representatives
5 Teacher representatives
2 Support staff representatives
2 Community representatives
16 Total members

The total number of seats for staff representatives (includes support and childcare staff) must be equal to the number of seats for parent representatives.
