Meet Our Student Trustees for 2015 / 2016!
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.
There are two positions for Student Trustee.
Elected by a special Student Trustee Election each Student Trustee has a standing position on the
Student Senate. The two Student Trustees are expected to set the agenda and take minutes as
well as co-chair the Student Senate. These meetings are held once a month. As well, Student
Trustees are expected to provide updates to the Senate on Board directions, policies and activities.
In the spring of each school year the Algoma District School Board begins accepting applications for Student Trustee elections. There are two positions available and interested candidates are to apply by filling out an application form and submitting it to their school's Vice Principal or Principal before the deadlines.
Students can download an application form and a description of the Student Trustee Role below.
Interviews are held at the Board Office and after the interview process, a short list of candidates will then move to the Student Trustees Election Assembly at which time the Student Senate will vote for the two student trustees.
For more information, contact: Superintendent of Education Marcy Bell at (705) 945-7268.
