PVNC Catholic seeking community input into Directional Policy – Governance, Vision and Strategic Priorities

PVNC Board Logo

The Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington (PVNC) Catholic District School Board is seeking public consultation on the renewal of its Directional Policy 100 – Governance, Vision and Strategic Priorities.

This Directional Policy is up for renewal as part of the Board’s regular policy review schedule.


  • To create a shared understanding of the principles and practices of good governance by articulating a multi-year strategic plan with a clear vision and focused priorities; by establishing a consistent process for the development, implementation and monitoring of directional policies and administrative procedures, and by respecting the distinct roles and responsibilities of the board of trustees and staff.


Directional policies signal the major intentions and priorities of the elected board. They are few in number and broad in scope. Directional policies signal long-term institutional commitments to student achievement and well-being, to values, and to fairness.

Administrative procedures, which are a mechanism to implement the policies of the elected board, are specific, detailed and focused and must align with the directional policy under which they sit.

The following administrative procedures support the Directional Policy 100 – Governance, Vision and Strategic Priorities and can be viewed here.(External link)

  • 100 – Governance, Vision and Strategic Priorities
