Policies, Procedures, Protocols and Guidelines

The South Shore Regional Centre for Education and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development meet regularly to review all policies in the province. Some SSRCE policies are outdated and need to be updated or rescinded, some are being replaced by Ministerial Policies and in some cases, new policies are required. We appreciate your patience while we work through these changes.

Policies provide a framework for the delivery of education and the day-to-day management of the school system.
