PERTH MODERN SCHOOL BOARD


The Perth Modern School Board was formed with the purpose of engaging in activities that will enhance the education provided by the school. The Board takes part in establishing and reviewing the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions. In addition, the Board participates in the planning of financial arrangements necessary to fund the school’s objectives, priorities and directions.

The Board meets regularly throughout the year with scheduled meetings and additional meetings to discuss specific issues. The Board meets to evaluate the school’s performance in achieving our objectives and inputs into discussions about the student code of conduct and dress code. The Board actively promotes the school in the community and develops suitable community partnerships.


Membership of the Perth Modern School Board comprises the School Principal, three staff members, one community representative nominated by the P&C, three elected parents, two student representatives as observers selected from Student Council and two members of the general community.
