Board of Trustees Elections
What is the Board of Trustees?
The Board of Trustees is the Crown entity responsible for the governance and the control of the management of the school. The board is the employer of all staff in the school, is responsible for setting the school’s strategic direction in consultation with parents, staff, and students, and ensuring that its school provides a safe environment and quality education for all its students. The Board is also responsible for overseeing the management of personnel, curriculum, property, finance, and administration. The Board of Trustees at Glenfield College is made up of six elected parent representatives, along with a staff representative and the school Principal.
