Applications for the position of Student Trustee with the Limestone District School Board are now being accepted.
The Board has established two positions for Student Trustees to provide for the interests of students within its school system. One trustee will be selected from our urban schools and one for our rural schools to ensure accurate representation for all secondary students in the Board.
The Student Trustee position provides for the active involvement of students in their education and allows them to provide greater insight into student activities, programs and needs. This important role also encourages more student involvement in the district’s governance activities, and a greater awareness and understanding of mutual issues between and among the Board, school staff and students.
The position of Student Trustee is open to all senior students of the Limestone District School Board who meet the eligibility criteria listed on the Application Form for Student Trustee 2018. This policy extends the candidacy to not only the highest two ranking officials of the respective school Student Council, but to any senior student in Grade 10 or 11, and returning Grade 12 students.
Candidates must meet the eligibility criteria for the next academic year, and submit a completed application prior to the election. Applications must be returned to Bryan Lambert,Vice-Principal at Ernestown S.S. by 6 p.m., May 3, 2018.
The election will be held at the regular meeting of the Limestone Interschool Council from 9-11 a.m., on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at Limestone District School Board Education Centre at 220 Portsmouth Avenue. Candidates must also prepare a speech not exceeding two minutes to present to the incoming and outgoing members of the council.
