Organization of the School System 
The Department of Education has responsibility for public education (kindergarten through Grade 12).

Since 1967, the provincial government has had sole responsibility for financing public schools and is committed to equal opportunity for all students. The Minister of Education prescribes curriculum and establishes educational goals and standards.

Serving Canada's only officially bilingual province, New Brunswick's education system offers students the opportunity to learn in both French and English through two parallel but separate education systems. Each linguistic sector of the Department of Education is responsible for its own curriculum and assessment.

The public education system has 14 school districts -- five French and nine English. District Education Councils (DECs), consisting of publicly and locally elected members, are responsible for establishing the direction and priorities for the school district and for making decisions as to how the districts and schools are operated.
