Who Should Read This Handbook
If you are contemplating becoming a School Board member in Saskatchewan (Trustee), this Governance Handbook will help inform your decision. If you are new to the job, this Handbook will be a vital resource that will provide guidance as you begin your governance journey. And if you are an experienced trustee or a Director of Education this handbook will become a valued reference manual at times of need.
The Purpose and Scope of the Handbook
This Handbook was designed to provide a simple, one stop resource that will provide guidance on the roles, responsibilities and actions that trustees undertake together and individually to provide direction and oversight to the school board. Though this manual has far less detail than the Professional Director Certification Program it has been written to support and enhance this valuable training and has been organized along the same lines as the program.
