BDDK: Reporting Board Meeting Business

B: Board Governance and Operations

Information about proceedings at meetings of the Board of School Trustees (the “Board”) is disseminated to the staff and the public via the "Board Meeting Highlights" prepared by Communications Co-ordinator following the Board meeting. 

In addition, Board meeting minutes, with the exception of minutes of closed meetings, are available for public inspection as required by law and Board policy (see BDDG Minutes).  However, the By-laws of the Board forbid the disclosure by trustees of any confidential documentary or oral information given or obtained, directly or indirectly, by trustees, unless the Board authorizes such disclosure. 

It is the policy of the Board not to release or circulate research reports until they have been officially received by the Board.
