School Board Roles and Responsibilities

The role of a School Board is outlined in the School Education Act 1999. In essence, the role of School Board is one of setting the long term future for the school and maintaining oversight (not management) of the school's operation. It is not about running the school - that is the job of the principal. It is about providing additional expertise to help the school achieve the best outcomes for the students.
