Policies and Bylaws

Contact Carrie Pratt at 250-398-3833 if you have specific questions related to the Polices and Bylaws.

All organizations, as a requirement of incorporation, are required to establish Bylaws in respect to specific matters. These are usually matters that relate to the functioning of the board and its relationship to members. General policies should also be established by the Board of Education and are subject to change at any time. It is in the interest of most voluntary and non-profit organizations to limit the number of formal Bylaws and focus attention on creating key policies. This gives the Board of Education the flexibility and opportunity to identify the organizational practices that are important to the Board in such a way that they can be easily modified when the need arises. This is often referred to as “governing by policy.”

The Board of Education is seeking feedback on Draft Policy 510 - Protection of Students and Maintenance of Order. Feedback can be sent to info@sd27.bc.ca by June 26.
