Trustees

Board of Trustees for 2018 to November 30, 2022

School board trustees are elected officials who are responsible for operating publicly-funded schools within their jurisdiction, and for the delivery and quality of educational programs and services. Legal accountability for Board decisions applies to the Board as a corporate entity rather than to individual trustees.

Trustees may be contacted regarding any questions, concerns or suggestions about the school within their jurisdiction or about education in general.

Student trustees for 2018-2019

Three student trustees are elected each year by the Student Senate to serve a one-year term on the Board. Student trustees participate in public school board meetings, represent student opinions at the Board level and participate actively on committees. Through student involvement at the Board level, Board members become aware of student issues and student opinions. Find out more on the Student Senate web page.

2018 Student Trustees Student Trustees Ryan Gentle, Trenton High School; Meera Moorthy, Eastside Secondary School; and Melissa Elliott, North Hastings High School represent the student voice at the Board table.

Elected school board members

School board trustees are elected every four years through municipal elections. Their role involves establishing the school board vision, mission and strategic plan; setting policy; and ensuring effective stewardship of the board’s resources.

Strategic Plan

2015-2020 Strategic Plan

We are pleased to present the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan (Pdf) for Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB).

Our new strategic plan consists of a vision, mission, priorities and goals, all of which are all built on the foundation of our eight Growing with Character attributes: caring, cooperation, honesty, humour, integrity, respect, responsibility and trustworthiness. It also aligns with Ministry of Education priorities.

This plan was developed over a number of months in 2015. Input was received from several sources, including employees, students, trustees, parents/guardians and community members. We are most appreciative of everyone who has been part of the planning and review processes. Thank you to all for the ideas, energy and commitment to the planning process.

At HPEDSB we are committed to student achievement and well-being. Each student is an individual with unique interests, goals and strengths. All students have the opportunity to explore the possibilities for today and tomorrow, and move towards graduation from their chosen pathway.

We look forward to honouring and fulfilling the actions in this strategic plan (Pdf).

Vision

All students prepared and empowered for the possibilities of today and tomorrow.

Mission

We create dynamic, inclusive educational experiences that develop capable, confident, curious learners who thrive and contribute to their communities.

Strategic priorities and goals

Achieving Excellence & Equity

• Increase graduation rates and reduce achievement gaps for students not yet at the provincial standard
• Provide programs and services to help each student achieve success
• Support all students to be globally minded learners and leaders

Learning & Leadership

• Involve students, cultivate student leadership and voice
• Collaborate as a learning organization to engage all employees in developing their growth plans
• Implement a renewed succession planning process for school and system leaders

Public Confidence

• Ensure effective management of all resources (i.e. human, financial, environmental)
• Operate through good governance
• Be leaders in public education

Well-Being

• Develop the elements of well-being for students and employees collaboratively
• Create welcoming, inclusive and safe learning environments that optimize students’ potential
• Build the capacity of employees to deliver positive social and emotional learning experiences
