Bill n0 86

The bill

This bill amends the Education Act in order to replace the council of commissioners by a school council composed of parents, school board personnel members and persons from the community. It also sets out the powers and duties of the school council, its mode of operation and the rules governing the election of school council members. To that end, it provides that the community representatives may, depending on the result of a consultation, be elected either by all the electors domiciled in the territory of the French language or English language school board concerned or by the parents’ committee. The Act respecting school elections is consequently repealed
