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 2019-2020

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.

Student Trustees 2019 Student Trustees Kristen Brant, Eastside Secondary School; Madison Davis, Centennial Secondary School; and Ryan Gentle, Trenton 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.
