In Canada, education is a provincial responsibility. Under the School Act of British Columbia, each school district is required to have a Board of Education, which takes on much of the responsibility for the operation of public schools.
The Board of Education is elected locally every four years. The role of the board is to govern the education system of their community in a progressive and educationally sound manner.
There are seven trustees on the Campbell River Board of Education, who were elected November 15, 2014.

Public meetings are held every three weeks, on a Tuesday night. Community members are welcome to attend public meetings.
At public board meetings, school trustees debate and vote to determine a majority decision on educational issues.
