Grenfell Consolidated School District No. 150 of Saskatchewan was established on August 26, 1963 pursuant to the Schools Act in the area near Grenfell, Saskatchewan. The original Grenfell School District No. 150 borders were expanded to make it large enough to become an independent school district.
The Board of the Grenfell Consolidated School District No. 150 was responsible for administering and managing the school district and for generally supervising and controlling each school. From 1974-1993 it functioned as part of the Qu'Appelle Valley Superintendency No. 27. The Board provided buildings, equipment and supplies; hired qualified teachers; paid teachers their monthly salaries; and dealt with attendance, transportation and disciplinary issues. The Board was assisted by a secretary-treasurer, who managed the finances. The Superintendent of Schools for the School District, appointed by the Minister of Education, was responsible for the general supervision of the schools and conferred with teachers and the Board on various issues.
In 1978, the School Act was replaced by the Education Act (SS 1978 c. 17). Grenfell Consolidated School District No. 150 became Grenfell School Division No. 92 effective January 1, 1979.
Name of creator
The Grenfell Consolidated School District No. 150 of Saskatchewan became the Grenfell School Division No. 92 of Saskatchewan effective January 1, 1979, pursuant to the Education Act (S.S. 1978, c.17). The Division was based around Grenfell, Saskatchewan. The Board of the school division was responsible for administering the public elementary and secondary schools within its borders. The five member Board was elected through a public vote. Funding to administer and operate the schools in the Division was provided through provincial grants and locally-generated revenue. The Division was located within the Qu'Appelle Valley Superintendency No. 27.
The responsibilities of the Board were the same as those assigned to the separate and francophone school boards in the province. The Board's duties and powers included administering and managing the educational affairs of the school division; exercising general supervision and control over the schools in the division; approving administrative procedures pertaining to the internal organization, management and supervision of the schools; providing and maintaining school accommodation, equipment and facilities; and appointing and employing qualified teachers, principals and other necessary staff.
In the fall of 1992, the Department of Education created the Scenic Valley School Division. Grenfell School Division No. 92 became part of Scenic Valley School Division No. 117 effective January 1, 1993.
Bonny Scheitzer, an administrative assistant working on behalf of the Scenic Valley School Division No. 117, transferred these records to the Regina office, Saskatchewan Archives in one accession in 1995: R1995-341 (November 17, 1995).
