Financial Health Working Group

Financial Governance and Accountability

With recent auditor reviews and special advisor reports recommending strengthening the financial accountability framework of school districts, the Ministry of Education has developed guidance materials in partnership with the Financial Health Working Group.  This Group includes membership from the Ministry, BC School Trustees Association (BCSTA), BC School Superintendents Association (BCSSA), BC Association of School Business Officials (BCASBO), Office of the Auditor General, and Office of the Comptroller General of BC.

Together, we are building on an already solid base of financial accountability practices exhibited by the K-12 Public Education Sector.  This work supports leadership development in the sector, and the Framework for Enhancing Student Learning.

These financial governance and accountability documents support boards of education in the work they do as governors of our education sector.
