Name Change Notice (July 3, 2018 Updated)

July 3, 2018

With the passage of the Education Reform (2018) Act on March 9, 2018, the Strait Regional School Board has been officially renamed the Strait Regional Centre for Education, and Ford Rice's title has changed from Superintendent of Schools to Regional Executive Director of Education as of April 1, 2018.

As a result, we are currently in transition from the Strait Regional School Board to the Strait Regional Centre for Education.  We will transition gradually and fully over time. 

We want to reassure parents, guardians, students, staff and school communities that, while the elected school board has been dissolved as of March 31, 2018, the local regional office remains. Please continue to direct your questions and/or concerns by contacting Regional Office by telephone as noted below. In addition, you may continue to access information through our renamed website,; and renamed Twitter account (@SRCE_NS) and by email at

We are committed to continuing to provide excellent service and support to our school communities as these changes are underway and will keep you updated as additional changes occur.
