Board Committees

Trustees meet in standing committees to discuss school district matters. These committees consist of appointed trustees and district administrative staff. Some also have parents, students and community representatives. Committees make formal recommendations to the Board at regular Board meetings.

Standing Committee Meetings

Public meetings of the Burnaby Board of Education’s standing committees are usually held at the District Administration Office, 5325 Kincaid Street. Members of the community are welcome to attend all public standing committee meetings. The agendas are posted online the Monday morning prior to the scheduled public meeting and the committee reports of these meetings are posted after they are approved by the Board. The Committee meeting reports are available to view.

The Board suspended all committee meetings in March because of concerns regarding public gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic. This page will be updated as soon as more information is available. If you have any questions regarding committees please contact the office of the Secretary-Treasurer at or by phone at 604-296-6900, ext. 661-003.
