The Louis Riel School Division has released an updated organizational chart to help students, staff and the public understand the inner workings and reporting relationships of the Division, from the Board Office to the school level and community levels. This model reflects LRSD's focus on students, while incorporating Indigenous perspectives on leadership.
Check out the organization chart here.
Students at the Centre.
Unlike previous organizational charts, this one places students at the centre of LRSD operations, supported by their parents and guardians.
Front-Line Staff and Volunteers.
From there, the chart includes front-line staff, volunteers and casual staff that work directly with students, including teachers, educational assistants, school clerical and custodial teams, bus drivers, and volunteers and casual staff at work in LRSD's 40 schools.
School-Level Leaders (Principals and Vice Principals).
The next layer includes the Principals and Vice-Principals that make up the family of schools connected with each feeder high school (including the Louis Riel Arts & Technical Centre, which offers vocational schooling for grades 11 and 12 students as well as post-secondary students).
Moving from school-level leadership, the chart moves on to Divisional departments, including People Services, Payroll and Finance, Information Systems, Communications, Facilities, Transportation, and Administrative Support, as well as Student Support Services, Clinical Services, Indigenous Education, and Instructional Support.
Senior Leadership Team.
The Senior Leadership Team forms the senior administrative core of the Louis Riel School Division and reports directly to elected Trustees. In addition to the Superintendent, the Senior Leadership Team includes four Assistant Superintendents, three Directors, as well as a Secretary-Treasurer and Assistant Secretary-Treasurer.
LRSD School Board.
Nine elected Trustees represent four wards in the LRSD community, including a Chair, Vice-Chair, and seven Trustees. Each ward includes two or three representatives that are elected every four years by the electorate in conjunction with the Winnipeg Civic Election. School Board elections are run on behalf of metro school divisions by the City of Winnipeg. The Public Schools Act dictates the duties and powers of elected School Board members. The Act indicates that public education is a shared responsibility between school boards, and the Minister of Education.
The last, and significant layer of the organization chart includes the LRSD community, which elects School Board members every four years to represent them in the governance of the Division.
