The Newfoundland and Labrador English School Board recognizes that students and parents/guardians may sometimes disagree with decisions of the Board. Many student concerns can best be resolved through informal means at the school level, or by involving district staff. However, students and parents or caregivers have the right to formally appeal in writing to the Board a decision which significantly impacts them, in accordance with Section 22 of the Schools Act, 1997.
Before beginning an appeal at the District level, parents/guardians and/or students are strongly encouraged to try to resolve the issue at the school level. The determination of whether a decision or a failure to make a decision significantly impacts upon a student's education, health or safety shall be made on a case-by-case basis.
For an overview of the student appeal process, please review the GOV-101 Student Appeals Policy and related documentation on our Policy Page HERE.
