Boundary Review Steering Committee (BRSC)
Once the Board has approved the initiation of a school boundary review, the Superintendent of the affected Family of Schools will establish the Boundary Review Steering Committee and lead the school boundary review process. This committee will consist of:
- Family of Schools Superintendent(s) of all affected areas
- Superintendent from a non-affected area
- Senior Manager of Planning Services
- Trustee(s) for all of the affected areas, including Trustee who will co-chair the Boundary Review Committee
As necessary, the committee may also include the following supplementary members:
- Superintendent of Program
- Superintendent of Business Services
- Superintendent of Student Services
The affected school Superintendent will chair the committee. The Steering Committee will review school enrolments, school capacities and school programs. It should be noted that the Boundary Review Steering Committee is not a decision making body and does not make the final decision regarding any potential change to boundaries as a result of a School Boundary Review Process.
