School Inspection – Continued

CRA 1-5

The Reverse of the school inspection form illustrates a list of duties for the school trustee, the teacher, and the inspector.

The Trustee’s directions are to make sure that the schoolhouse and furniture are kept in good repair, ensure that the teacher is doing his/her job and using authorized materials, and take the inspector through the school.

The teacher has to oversee the smooth daily running of the schoolhouse.  Upholding the mandates of the community and the trustee were also very important.

Finally, the inspector’s job was to ensure that the students were learning, the teacher was teaching appropriately, the schoolhouse was in good condition and that all materials required were present. ¬†The inspector would then report back to the board on the status of his findings.
