Your Trustees

Our Board, like every school board in Ontario, is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Trustees are elected by separate school taxpayers every four years during municipal elections and are directly accountable to the community. The current seven Trustees will serve from December 1, 2010, to November 30, 2014.

Student Trustee

Students are represented on the Board through the appointment of one student Trustee who is selected by the Board-wide Student Council Liaison Committee. The student Trustee participates in discussions and debates during public meetings.

The student Trustee is a representative to, but not a member of the Board. Only the votes of elected Trustees are counted when Board decisions are made.
