The cyclical appointment process was introduced by the National Council on Education to standardize the appointment of school boards in the educational regions.

Under this arrangement, all schools in an administrative region are appointed to servre for a fixed three years tenure.

The aim is to ensure the timely appointment  of school boards by adopting a systematic approach to the appointment process.

School boards are therefore appointed in cycles, twice per year, with their tenure commencing April 1 and January 1 of each year
