The Board has established three positions for Student Trustees to provide for the interests of students within its school system. One Student Trustee each is elected to represent urban and rural schools. A third Student Trustee is elected to represent Indigenous students in the board. This is 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 for Student Trustee. 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. Elections will be held virtually. Please visit the Student Trustee webpage for more information and a link to the application form. 

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
