Our Governance

The Board of Directors of the College of Alberta School Superintendents (CASS) serves as the Governance Board for the ARPDC.

CASS engages a Provincial Advisory Committee of Education Partners to assist in and support the ARPDC mandate, and direction from the Minister to “broaden the spectrum of educational partners” at the provincial level, ensuring the contributions and recommendations of the ARPDC Advisory Committee are recognized and considered.
