Leadership committed to student success
The board of trustees governs the Peel board, like every public school board in Ontario. They are responsible for determining policies and maintaining standards of excellence in education for Peel region. They are elected by taxpayers during municipal elections and are directly accountable to the community.
Public school trustees are the critical link between communities and school boards. Trustee responsibilities include the following:
- govern and set policy for the Peel board
- govern for the provision of curriculum, facilities, human and financial resources for the board
- advocate for the needs of their communities
- as a constituency representative, to explain the policies and decisions of the board to residents
Trustees are available to help taxpayers, parents and others address any issues they may have about the public school system. Visit the "Trustees" section at www.peelschools.org for more information.
