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.
