About Your Trustees

The Board’s eleven-person elected board of trustees is responsible for approving the policies and bylaws governing the Board’s operations. The board of trustees also ensures that the quality of education in Waterloo Region is maintained, and the educational goals and needs of all students are met.

It is the responsibility of trustees to attend Committee of the Whole and Board meetings. Committee of the Whole meetings are held on the second and third working Mondays of each month. Board meetings are held on the last working Monday of each month where the Board ratifies the action taken at Committee of the Whole meetings in previous weeks.
