Generally, the role of the Board of Trustees is to set policy and the role of administration is to execute it.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    A policy is a statement adopted by the Board of Trustees to chart a course of action. Regulations, also adopted by the Board, are detailed rules to be observed when the corresponding policy is put into practice by administration. The Direct of Education, as Chief Administrator, will adopt procedures and guidelines to implement the policies and regulations as well as for other business of the Board.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The maintenance of a policy register is a dynamic ongoing process. As issues arise, new policies will be required as well as the revision of existing policies.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Organization of the Policy Register

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The system developed provides key names for each section. Some major sections are divided into subsections. There are 12 major classifications: Administration, Buildings/Plants/Grounds, Finance, Human Resources, Insurance, Meta Policy, Parents, Real Property, Schools, Students, Trustees and Violence Prevention.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The first letter of the section name appears in the number, for example, policies relating to Administration begin with "A". Where there are subsections, the first letter refers to the section and the second letter indicates the name of the subsection. For example, a policy on Transportation is labelled S.T.o1: "S" for Students, "T" for Transportation, and "01" for policy number within the section.


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Board policies with their regulations must be interpreted in the light of Ministry of Education (EDU) statutes and regulations. Wherever inconsistencies appear in interpretation, the EDU statutes and regulations prevail. Where a conflict appears between a policy and regulation with a negotiated agreement, it must be interpreted in line with the contract for the members of that particular bargaining unit.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    It is expected that this Policy Register will generate a greater understanding of the principles of the Toronto Catholic District School Board, will bring forth greater harmony and efficiency among the administrators, and facilitate communication for those responsible for the supervision and administration of the schools. This will enable the Board to devote more time to its primary duty of developing policies on a long-term basis.
