Are you interested in public education? Do you enjoy serving your community? If you have a desire to help govern a public school district, you might want to consider running in the election for School Trustee.

Elections

Elections are conducted according to the rules and regulations set out in the Local Government Act which governs local government elections throughout British Columbia. General local government elections in British Columbia are held every four years, including the elections for the offices of School District Trustees.

What does a School Trustee do?

School trustees are the members of the school district’s Board of Education. They are locally-elected representatives of the public and they are the community’s advocates for public education in their local school district. They are required to carry out their responsibilities in a manner that assists the board in fulfilling its duties under the School Act.

A trustee’s role is to maintain a focus on student achievement and well-being, and to participate in making decisions that benefit the entire district while representing the interests of their community.

The BC School Trustees Association (BCSTA) has put together a great guide for anyone interested in running (or running again) for trustee. Please take some time to download the information and explore their website.

You can also find more information on the general election timelines on the Elections BC website as well as the Provincial Government website.
