School Trustees

What do School Trustees do?

Each School Board has its own Board of Trustees. School Board Trustees are responsible for identifying the needs and priorities of their community and for ensuring these are considered in the decisions of the Board of Education that result in practical educational opportunities for students. Decisions are made by the whole Board not by an individual Trustee. Trustees set the budget for the whole School Board District, as well as policies that describe to parents, the public and the Board’s Staff how the Board operates and how services will be provided. The Board of Trustees is accountable to the Province of Ontario. They are also accountable to their communities and must consult with parents, students and supporters of the Board when developing the Board’s multi-year plan. Trustees are expected to attend a range of community meetings including School Council meetings and to respond to the concerns of parents and community members.
