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, 4054 Norfolk 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.

Until further notice board committee meetings will be held via video conference because of concerns regarding public gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you would like to attend any of these meetings please email for access details. If you require an American Sign Language interpreter please include this in your access request.
