School Committee

In September of 2013, the Alberta Ballet Board of governors appointed multiple members of its trustees to be members of the School Committee. Trustees of the School Committee are granted the authority to ensure the school fulfills its mandate to provide Grade 7 to 12 education within Alberta.

The School Committee ensures:

  • each student has the opportunity to achieve his/her potential
  • children are safe at school
  • the jurisdiction’s financial and capital resources are well managed
  • its business is conducted in a legal and ethical manner

When acting in its strategic leadership role the School Committee is planning for the future. Informed by environmental scans, the School Committee works on the School’s mission, values, vision and goals. The School Committee makes decisions about resources, programs and services that reflect its long term priorities. The School Committee also provides direction through its policies. This includes planning, developing, implementing and evaluating policy. The School Committee trustees exercises its decision-making authority by passing motions.
