One of the strengths of the ACT education system is that parents, teachers and students participate in school decision-making through the school board. The board provides a formal mechanism for parents, staff and students to have their views taken into account when decisions are made.
Section 39(1) of the Education Act details the functions of a board of a public school:
- to establish strategic direction and priorities for the school
- to monitor and review school performance and to report on it to the Chief Executive, parents of students at the school and staff
- to develop, maintain and review curriculum for the school
- to develop and review education policies at the school
- to establish budgetary policies for the school and approve the school budget
- to establish policies for the efficient and effective use of school assets and the management of financial risk
- to develop relationships between the school and the community and between the school and community organisations
- to make recommendations to the Chief Executive on issues affecting the school and to give effect to the Chief Executive’s directions
- to encourage parent participation in their children’s learning
- to exercise any other function given to the board under the Act or any other Territory law.
