Governing Board

A school's Governing Board is a body established according to the Education Act. It is composed of the principal, parents, teachers, and representatives of non-teaching professionals and support staff, as well as community representatives. All decisions made by the governing board must be in the interest of the school, the students, the parents, the school staff, and the community. All committee members work in partnership to ensure that every student receives the best possible learning opportunity.

The Governing Board at JFK is comprised of:

  • 6  Parents (Voting)

  • Principal (Non-Voting )

  • 2  Members from the Community (Non-Voting)

  • There may also be up to 2 substitute parent members who may be called upon to replace regular parent members who are absent from meetings of the governing board.


​Parent members are elected at the Annual General Meeting which is held at the school prior to September 30th of each school year.

  • School’s educational project
