The CBE has reconfigured the number of administrative Area offices from five to seven effective April 3, 2017. This change was made to address the need for more responsive supports to school instructional leaders and learning teams, which in turn support student success. In this new service model Areas are no longer defined by geographical boundaries. Instead, the CBE has adopted a “feeder school” model to ensure continuity of support for students and families from kindergarten to Grade 12.
Area offices provide leadership support to principals and teachers to improve instruction and student achievement. They also provide timely support to their schools, families and communities, help deliver system services to schools, support principals in school operations and ensure effective collaboration amongst schools.
