The start times for Board and committee meetings of the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board will change commencing in January 2017.
The decision was made to shift Board and educational services/business and corporate services meetings to an earlier start at 5:00 p.m. instead of the current 7:00 p.m. start time. Generally, the committee meetings are held on the second Monday of the month and Board meetings are on the last Monday of the month.
Though meetings are typically only one to two hours in length, they may go longer when important items or special presentations are on the agenda. The new time will ensure that meetings conclude at a favourable hour, especially for participants from distant areas of the county.
“The change was made in consideration of the convenience and well-being of those who are required to attend the meetings and it reflects the Board’s overall commitment to good stewardship,” noted RCCDSB Chair Dave Howard.
The time change will be revisited after the next school board elections to ensure that all are available at the earlier time.
