History

CCRCE (originally CCRSB) was founded in 1996 under an Order in Council passed by the Executive Council of Nova Scotia pursuant to the "Designation of School Regions and Establishment of School Boards Regulations" made under Section 7 of the Education Act S.N.S. 1995-96, c. 1. This Order in Council created CCRCE (originally CCRSB) and dissolved the following entities:

Each of these were formed in the 1980s from municipal school boards. For example, the Colchester-East Hants District School Board was created from the Truro School Board, the Stewiacke School Board, the Colchester County School Board, and the East Hants District School Board.

2018 Dissolution

On January 23, 2018 education consultant Avis Glaze presented a report on the province's school system to government that included the recommendation that the seven elected regional school boards become regional education offices overseen by appointed provincial advisory council. [1] On January 24, 2018, the provincial government announced it accepted the recommendation and the Halifax Regional School Board and six other school boards would be dissolved though no date for dissolution was then announced. [2] The elected school board was dissolved on March 31, 2018. [2]
