Trustees are locally-elected representatives of the public, and they are the community’s advocate for public education. They are required to carry out their responsibilities in a manner that assists the board in fulfilling its duties under the Education Act.
Simcoe County public ratepayers elect trustees to a four-year term. The SCDSB is governed by 12 trustees - 11 elected to represent the various municipalities of Simcoe County and one appointed to represent the county's First Nation communities.
Student Trustees - In addition, three students are elected by the SCDSB Student Senate to serve as trustees each year. See more about this year's student trustees.
School Board Meetings - School Board meetings are usually held on the fourth Wednesday of each month in the Education Centre. Board committees that help to break down the complexity of this large system include: Human Resources; Program; Business & Facilities; and, Special Education Advisory.
