March 8, 2016 - What is a student trustee?

Student trustees bring the student perspective to the board and help to ensure that the school board is acting in the best interest of the students. The Student trustee can influence school board and provincial education policy. Student trustees are responsible for representing students; adult trustees represent all taxpayers. Student trustees are also members of their Student Senate. Student trustees may suggest motions to advance issues and may cast a nonbinding vote.

What role does the Student Trustee play?

Student representation forms an important basis for Board decisions that affect students. The student representative participates at the Board table and/or committee meetings however their vote is not binding (under subsection 55(3) of the Education Act). A Student Trustee is elected by student peers to represent the student voice.
