Dates of existence

1979 - 1982


The Board was established after Bedford was incorporated as a town in 1979. Prior to that Bedford schools were under the County of Halifax Municipal School Board. It was responsible for all aspects of the operation of Bedford schools, including but not limited to: financing and grants, staff hiring and contracts, administrative structure, curricula and programs, area rates, bussing, insurance, school property, and the impact on schools of population change. The Board occasionally met with representatives of the provincial Department of Education.

The 1981 Walker Report from the Commission on Public Education Finance recommended the amalgamattion of municpal school boards, and so the Bedford Board of School Commissioners combined again with the County of Halifax to form the Halifax County - Bedford District School Board in January 1982.
