Board of Trustees
Seven Trustees are elected to guide our school system based on the values Calgarians have for their public education system. The Board’s goal is to enable each student to complete high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning. Trustees are elected every four years in the municipal election, along with Calgary’s mayor and councillors.

Schools and Area Offices
To manage the needs of our large school system and efficiently support our schools, we have divided our school district into five geographic areas in Calgary. Each area is led by an area director who provides leadership support to principals in 40-50 schools. Each school is led by a principal who is responsible for meeting the learning needs of each student.
Service units provide support to schools by:
helping teachers develop the best teaching methods and tools for student learning
hiring and developing the skills of our employees
looking after our schools and buildings
maintaining and improving learning technology
managing our finances
providing other services such as legal and communications support
