In addition, The Catholic Monitor, the Board’s newsletter for parents, students and staff, includes a section called Board Highlights, which outlines matters discussed and decisions made at Regular Board Meetings. It is published once per month.

How can I register to speak?

The Board welcomes public input into policy development and issues of particular interest or concern to ratepayers. View the Board’s policy on public delegations. Individuals or groups wishing to make a presentation should submit a “Public Request To Make a Presentation” form (Admin. 29) to the Secretary of the Board at least 10 days in advance of the meeting. Presentations from the public are heard at the last meeting of the month. To register, complete and submit a form, or contact Trustee Services.
