HSC’s Board of Governors is comprised of a group of individuals committed to the successful stewardship of the College. The role of the Board is to establish and direct policies for the College, oversee HSC’s financial affairs and has the responsibility of appointing a Head of College, and conducting his/her review. The Board is strictly a policy board, not an operational board, leaving responsibility for day-to-day operations to the HSC administration team.
Members of the Board are widely representative of key school constituencies and are elected based on their demonstrated ability and desire to effect a positive direction for the College. Strengths in law, construction, finance, information technology, education, transportation and manufacturing all mesh together to form a Board that is active and committed to HSC. Terms for the Board comprise three years with the possibility of a maximum of three additional, consecutive one year terms.
HSC has a governance model similar to other independent schools, in keeping with the guidelines and requirements set out by the Conference of Independent Schools (CIS), as well as the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS) organization.
The Board meets approximately 10 times a year, augmented by monthly sub-committee meetings in the areas of Finance, Governance, Audit, Nominations, Alumni and Parents’ Guild. Communication to parents and other stakeholders is through email, an appointed Parent Ambassador or Board-Parent information meetings. Direct questions can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Board of Trustees is responsible for monitoring the investment of the HSC Endowment and, along with the Board of Governors, provide advice and direction on fundraising initiatives from the Advancement Office.
