- TSO (The Stationery Office)
The passing of the Act represents part of the Scottish Executive's commitment to review and reform the legislation governing school boards (the School Boards (Scotland) Act 1988. The Act places a duty on Scottish Ministers to promote parents' involvement in their child's school education. It builds on and strengthens the existing duties placed on education authorities by the Standards in Scotland's Schools etc. Act 2000 with regard to parents' involvement in their own child's school education and in school education generally. It repeals the 1988 Act and associated legislation and makes provision for new arrangements for parental representation in schools. The Act also places a duty on education authorities to give advice and information to parents on the education of their own child; and it requires education authorities to have a complaints procedure covering how they carry out their functions under the Act.
