Leadership Development: Minister's Principal Reference Group

Minister's Principal Reference Group

At the June 2005 meeting of the Partnership Table, the Minister introduced a new consultative body: the Minister's Principal Reference Group. The group was formed to look at the role of the principal, bringing expert opinion from the front line in schools that reflects the individual experiences and perspectives of principals and vice-principals.


The group includes 20 members, providing a balance of both principals and vice-principals. They represent the different elements of the publicly funded education system, including elementary and secondary, Catholic and public, English and French, as well as rural and urban areas of the province.
