From the Department of Education and Training:
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, including their role in principal selection, the constitution of school boards, the proceedings of board meetings, and the responsibilities associated with financial and reporting requirements.
The board is responsible for the school’s strategic direction. Operational matters are the responsibility of the Principal.
The school board is a formal mechanism for parents, carers, staff and students to participate in school decision-making.
