Changing attitudes in society requires schools and school boards to be increasingly accountable for the use of public funds. Funds are generated at the school level from a number of different sources and used in a number of different ways to enhance the development of the educational programs and to support school initiatives.

A representative from the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) was a member of this committee.
