Brighton Secondary College Policies
A school council is responsible for developing particular policies to reflect the school’s values and support the school’s broad direction, as outlined in its strategic plan. Legislation and Departmental imperatives require councils to develop some policies, and they may develop other policies to address local needs. The Brighton Secondary College Council reviews the College’s policies regularly to ensure that they remain relevant and valid. The day-to-day operational policies and procedures in schools are managed by the principal and staff.
School council policy documents are made available to the school community as a means to clarify functions and responsibilities, manage change, promote consistency, meet standards and make decision-making transparent.
