Sticky post: Motions and Trustee Voting Records  January 2012 – December 2015.

SD61 Greater Victoria School District serves students in Esquimalt, Oak Bay, Victoria, View Royal, parts of Saanich and the Highlands, and the Traditional Territories of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations.

Trustees and student representatives are referred to by last name only for brevity; “The Board of Education of SD No. 61 (Greater Victoria)” is referred to as “the Board”. Motions may be shortened but retain essential wording. Seconders not noted (and not required in Standing Committees).

Legally required “Section 72” reports from in camera meetings posted beside relevant meeting. (Click “view all” on Bylaws, Policies and Regs menu. under “Board” on SD61 website). “Section 72” refers to Section 72 (3) BC School Act :  “ A board must prepare a record containing a general statement as to the nature of the matters discussed and the general nature of the decisions reached at a meeting from which persons other than trustees or officers of the board, or both, were excluded….”   Any report beyond the very basic one required must be done by in camera motion / majority vote.

Search  SD61 Bylaws, Policies and Regulations here (click “View All”) . Actually, you will “read all” as the search function is  not currently all that helpful.
