What is a School Board Trustee? 

School Board Trustees are locally-elected representatives of the public within the ALCDSB jurisdiction. Trustees are governors, advocates and community leaders. As governors, Trustees provide strategic direction, oversight and evaluation to ensure the development and delivery of quality education programs in order to maximize the achievement and well-being of all students. As advocates, they inform and influence public perceptions and provincial education law and policy. As community leaders, Trustees engage with the public to build understanding, guidance and active support for publically funded Catholic education. 

Please visit your local Municipal Clerk's office (links below) for information on how to file your nomination paperwork.

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
