Make your voice count
It's time to elect student trustees for the 2019-20 school year!
Student trustees serve an important role for the Peel District School Board. They represent the voice of students in decisions about education in Peel, and they help keep students informed about important decisions that affect them.
Being a student trustee for the Peel District School Board is a great opportunity – and a big commitment. For the 2019-20 school year, the Peel board will select two student trustees – one representing schools NORTH of Highway 401 and one representing schools SOUTH of Highway 401.
