Delegation Information

Parents, guardians and community members who are interested in Catholic education are welcome to attend public sessions of our Board and Committee meetings.

Each meeting agenda has time set aside to hear delegations. These are brief verbal presentations from parents, guardians and others who wish to inform the Board of Trustees about a concern, idea or initiative at the local or board-wide level.

Delegates are allowed to address the Board in accordance with our Delegations and Public Participation Policy. Please be advised of the limitations of the policy. ​


Delegations are invited to speak for up to 3 minutes during the first part of each session.
