Regional Parents Committee


Regional Parents Committee

The English Montreal School Board has three regional parents' committees and a central parents' committee.

As stipulated in section 189 of the Education Act, each school board must establish a parents' committee. If a school board divides its territory into administrative regions, it may establish regional committees and a central parents committee (EA, s. 191).

What do the regional parents' committees do?

The members of the regional committees represent the parents whose children attend schools in their region.

Among other obligations, the regional committees must:

  • elect a chairperson according to the process outlined in Section 190 of the Education Act.
  • identify the regional delegates who will compose the Central Parents' Committee. (EA, s. 191)
  • The functions of the regional committees include:

  • promoting the parents' participation in the activities of the school board
  • giving advice on any subject conducive to the most efficient operation of a region
  • promoting adequate dialogue with the parents on the governing boards and parent participation organizations in order to facilitate the proper functioning of these two groups
  • informing the school board of the needs of parents as identified by the school representatives
  • responding to School Board consultations on matters stipulated in Section 193 of the Education Act and others that the School Board may submit to them

    How are members elected to the regional parents' committees?

    Every year, in September, each school holds a general assembly of parents to elect representatives to the governing board. From among the parent representatives elected, the general assembly elects a parent representative to the regional parents' committee. They may also elect an alternate to attend and vote at regional meetings when the representative elected is unable to do so. The term of office is one year.
