School Board


The Education Act 2004 (the Act) requires that a school board be established for each public school.

The Act describes: the functions of school boards, the composition of school boards, proceedings of board meetings, responsibilities associated with financial and reporting requirements, and the board’s role in principal selection.

The board is responsible for overseeing the school's strategic direction. Operational matters are the responsibility of the principal.

School boards must observe Directorate directions and ACT Government priorities and all legislative obligations.

The operational requirements of the school board are set out in the School Board Handbook - Operations. Any queries should be directed to the school principal in the first instance. Governance and Community Liaison Branch is available to assist principals and boards with operational issues. Contact details are provided below.
