Students needed for trustee table
Students entering Grade 11 or 12 next school year who are interested in representing students on the Board of Trustees at the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) are invited to run in this year’s student trustee election.
On April 12 each school’s student council will elect one student trustee candidate who will proceed to the regional election on April 24 at 5 p.m. at the SCDSB Education Centre (1170 Highway 26 in Midhurst).
Elected student trustees will develop their leadership skills, gather student opinion, bring the student perspective to public board discussions and earn a credit towards graduation.
Interested students should see their school vice-principal.
Three pupil representatives are elected by their peers by April 30 each school year to represent the interests of students of the Simcoe County District School Board for the following school year. Their term of office is from August 1st to July 31st. Of the three elected student trustees, one shall be elected from each of the three geographic regions within the Board: North and East; Central and South; South and West.
Policy 2130 - Student Representation on the Board
Student trustees bring student perspectives to public board discussions, develop as student leaders, increase the Board's awareness of issues of concern to students, assist trustees in determining student issues, gather student opinion and help to foster effective communication between the Board and students.
Student trustees also lead Student Senate meetings. Student Senate meetings are held at the SCDSB Education Centre on the third Wednesday of each month beginning at 5 p.m.
