What is the difference between a school, school division, school council and a school board?
If you’re not sure which of these titles means what to you, it might be best to read the following before you get started.
A school is the governing body for schools.
Schools are separate legal entities, which is why they are often referred to as “schools”.
A school council is a body of people who decide which schools to run and what classes to teach, which are the main subjects taught at a school.
They are usually appointed by a school’s principal or head teacher.

A university is a branch of a school division.
It’s the school system’s governing body, which means they also decide which courses they will teach and which subjects they will not teach.
Some universities also set their own admission criteria for admission, while others have an admissions service that helps applicants apply for admission.
There are also separate admissions systems for people who have a disability, including people with autism, Asperger’s and other learning difficulties.
A local authority is a regional authority, which gives local councils more power over schools, schools and local services.
They often run schools in the area they’re based in, for example, if they’re in Townsville they’ll run the schools there.
A regional authority may also appoint a new principal or chief teacher, who can then make final decisions about the curriculum and academic standards.
Schools also have a separate board of governors, who are responsible for running the schools and making sure they’re doing the right things.
Schools and local authorities can’t control everything, but they do have the power to limit access to schools and ensure there are no gaps in access to learning.
What is a State Board?
State boards are bodies set up to make sure schools are meeting the needs of all children, particularly young people with learning disabilities.
They can also provide advice and guidance on what schools and services should do to meet their needs.
