This session, led by SCDSB staff, will provide an overview of Board governance and how Board committees operate.

The event will also:

Trustees are elected during municipal elections every four years and are directly accountable to the community. The next municipal election is October 22. The new Board of Trustees will serve from Dec. 1, 2018 to Nov. 14, 2022.

Individuals interested in running for trustee should submit their nomination to the lead municipal office, which is the municipality with the higher population of electors. Nominations may be submitted until July 27, 2018. Visit our Election page for more information on how to run, who is eligible to run and the process.
