Advocacy


The Manitoba School Boards Association acts as an advocate for public education by speaking out on the issues that are important to school boards and the students they serve. The association fulfills this advocacy role in its dealings with other levels of government (provincial, federal and municipal), its educational partners, business and other organizations.

The basis of The Manitoba School Boards Association advocacy work is the policy direction established by member school boards at the association's annual convention. Between conventions, the provincial executive monitors developments that impact on public education, such as legislative amendments. The association responds to these developments in accordance with established policy, or, where no policy exists, in accordance with the association's mission and mandate.
