Effective boards of education have a governance structure designed to result in strong decisions that flow from strategic direction supported by quality information and transparency. The SD8 Governance Framework is in progress and will be updated as the framework is developed. 

In-Progress 2024-2025 Kootenay Lake Board of Education Governance Framework and Annual Learning Plan

District Communication Protocols: School District 8 - Kootenay Lake believes that trusting relationships and open communication are important. Our Appendix 1310 A: Communication Protocols reflects our collaborative approach to resolving concerns or complaints. All concerns should be addressed. We encourage you to begin with the individual involved (staff person or teacher). If you feel that you cannot approach the individual involved, please contact your school principal.
