REGULAR BOARD MEETINGS
Regular meetings of the Board of Education are open to the public and are usually held once a month, with the exception of July and August. Regular board meetings begin at 7:00 pm and are held at the District Education Centre, 14033 - 92nd Avenue, Surrey, BC.
The board also meets "in-camera" prior to, or following every regular board meeting to deal with items pertaining to personnel, property or litigious matters. In the interest of preserving confidentiality in such matters, all persons other than board members and officers are excluded from attending in-camera meetings.
SPECIAL BOARD MEETINGS
Special board meetings may be called from time-to-time to deal with emergent issues. These meetings are held at the call of the chairperson.
COMMUNICATING WITH YOUR BOARD OF EDUCATION
The Board of Education believes good two-way communication with the community is necessary if trustees are to offer the sound educational leadership and effective financial management they have been elected to provide.
Parents and other members of the community are always welcome to attend regular board meetings. Through formal delegations or through the question period following each board meeting, members of the public have an opportunity to communicate with the board about district programs and services. Information on communicating with the trustees during a board meeting may be found in Policy 2400.
Attending board meetings is not only a way to hear what your trustees have to say, it is a chance to have your own voice heard in the operation of the Surrey School District.
