The Regional Superintendent of Schools serves as the Ex-Officio Secretary of the Regional Board of School Trustees. Elected members meet quarterly. Special meetings (such as detachments and annexations) are held as needed.
When citizens want to transfer their property so their children can attend school in a neighboring school district, the Regional Superintendent provides guidance on the procedures involved and legal requirements. Petitions for transfers are filed with the Regional Superintendent, and a hearing is held with the Regional Board of School Trustees who is the deciding body in such matters. Detachments and annexations of property are a serious matter. The ROE suggests that petitioners may wish to seek legal advice in the preparation of documents.
