Trustee Elections

Do you have a passion for education and a desire to help govern a public school district? 

If so, you might want to consider running as a School Trustee. Nomination packages are available at City Hall. 

What does a School Trustee do?

School trustees are the members of the school district’s Board of Education. They are locally elected representatives of the public and they are the community’s advocates for public education in their local school district. They are required to carry out their responsibilities in a manner that assists the board in fulfilling its duties under the School Act.

A trustee’s role is to maintain a focus on student achievement and well-being, and to participate in making decisions that benefit the entire district while representing the interests of their community.
