School trustees are elected members of a board of education. They represent the public and advocate for public education in their community. They have one primary mandate: improving learning for all students.
Local school trustee elections allow the community an important opportunity to lead and oversee investment in public education. The next local elections will be held on October 15, 2022.
The general prerequisites required to run as a school trustee are to be 18, a Canadian citizen, a resident of B.C. for at least six months, and not to be disqualified under the School Act or any other enactment from being nominated for, elected to or holding office as trustee.
