Student Trustees

The Student Trustee is a member of the Algoma District School Board of Trustees and as such is part of the deliberations and decision-making of all matters brought before the Board. Some critical responsibilities of the Student Trustee are to represent the interests of students during deliberations of the Board of Trustees and to communicate Board decisions to system students. 

In October 2018,  ADSB approved changes to the Student Trustee Policy to move from two Student Trustees to three Student Trustees. Student Trustees have been and will continue to be elected from ADSB secondary schools. The Student Senate will elect two Student Trustees and the ADSB Northern Indigenous Youth Council will elect one Indigenous Student Trustee with final approval being determined by the Algoma District School Board.

Student Trustees represent the voice of students in decisions about education in Algoma, and help keep students informed about important decisions that affect them. The purpose of electing Student Trustees to the Board is to encourage and provide student leadership development and involvement in public service; to provide for the representation of student interests, to bring a student perspective to the deliberations of the Board, and to support strategies being implemented in Ontario schools.
