School representative bodies
School representative bodies provide a way for parents and community members to be involved with decisions at schools.
There are three types of school representative bodies:
- school council - an elected body of members for a government school
- independent public school board - an elected body of members for government schools that are independent public schools
- joint school representative body - an elected body of members which represent more than one government school.
Role of school representative bodies
A school representative body is the governing body of a school. They work with the school to achieve the best outcomes for students.
Independent public school boards have all the functions of a school council; however school boards focus on strategy and monitoring performance.
