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, 2018, to November 30, 2022.
