Public Board Meetings
Public board meetings are held at the HSD Administration Office (Steinbach) on the first Tuesday of each month during the school year, with the exception of August.
HSD public board meetings are open to all, and begin at 7:30 pm. Meetings scheduled for the 2017-18 school year are as follows:
Aug. 22, Sept. 5, Oct. 3, Oct. 24*, Nov. 7, Dec. 5
Jan. 16**, Feb. 6, Mar. 6, Apr.3, May 1, Jun. 5, Jun. 28, Aug. 21
*Public Consultation on Budget
**Meeting originally scheduled for Jan. 9 has been rescheduled to Jan. 16
Occasionally there is a meeting of the Committee of the Whole (in camera session) before the public meeting begins. The doors will open just before 7:30 pm and you are welcome to enter at this time. The public meeting runs until the agenda is complete and adjournment is generally 1-2 hours, but may go longer. If a post-meeting of the Committee of the Whole (in camera) is held, there will be a short break during which the public is excused.
Special Board Meetings
Separate board committees for Finance, Operations, Curriculum, Transportation, Negotiations, Public and Staff Relations and Workplace Safety and Health meet separately and report to the board at public board meetings. In addition to the regularly scheduled public board meetings, the board may at any time hold special meetings of the Committee of the Whole.
The board also invites groups to meetings which are not public, but open by invitation. Examples of these are the Board/Administrator Liaison Meeting (January) PAC/PTA Liaison Meetings (October and May), Retirement Banquet for Teachers (June).
