Student Trustees for the 2021-2022 school year were recently elected by their peers following a virtual application and election process due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Limestone District School Board has established three positions for Student Trustees to provide for the interests of students within its school system. One Student Trustee is elected to represent urban students, one Student Trustee is elected to represent rural students, and one Student Trustee is elected to represent Indigenous students to ensure accurate representation for all secondary students in the board. 

The Student Trustee position allows students in Grades 11 or 12 to provide greater insight into student activities, programs and needs. This important role also encourages more student voice 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 2021-2022 Student Trustees are:

Elections for position of Student Trustees typically occur in the spring preceding the next school year. Student Trustees may occupy position for a one-year term only unless they are subsequently re-elected. 

Candidates were required to submit a completed application, a written or recorded speech, and a written response to platform questions, to present to the incoming and outgoing members of the Inter-School Council. The same application process was used for Indigenous Student Trustee however, this student is selected by Indigenous Student representatives from each secondary school at a separate meeting. 

This year, Limestone saw its largest and most diverse group of students running for Student Trustee. There were nine student candidates in total. 

Current Student Trustees will work with incoming Student Trustees who will provide mentorship and learning opportunities.
