Committed to Student Success
Peel board trustees advocate for their communities
Public school trustees are the critical link between communities and school boards. They are elected by taxpayers during municipal elections every four years and are directly accountable to the community. The current 12 trustees have been elected to serve from Dec. 1, 2010, to Nov. 30, 2014.
Working together, trustees:
· govern and establish policies
· set budgets and govern the provision of curriculum, facilities, human and financial resources
· advocate for the needs of their communities, and explain the policies and decisions of the board to residents
· work with all levels of government to help ensure student success
Trustees are available to help taxpayers, parents and others address any issues they may have about the public school system.
Trustees meet as a board on a regular basis and also participate on organized standing committees. The meeting schedule lists public meetings.
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. The Peel board has two student trustees—one representing schools north of Highway 401 and one representing schools south of Highway 401.
