What do Alberta School Boards do?

In Alberta, citizens elect school boards to act for the legislature in their local schools and communities. School boards exist because of the belief that government – and decisions – made closest to the people being governed are the most effective. Learn more about the important role of school boards. 

School boards are:

  • Advocates for Alberta’s children
  • Champions for education
  • Partners in education
  • Strategic governors
  • Political officials
