Make your voice count
It's time to elect student trustees for the 2020-21 school year!
Student trustees serve an important role for the Peel District School Board. As a student trustee, you represent the voice of students in decisions about education in Peel, and help keep students informed about important decisions that affect them. 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.
I'm interested - what to do next?
If you are interested in running for the position of student trustee, please talk to your principal/vice principal(s) and review the student guide.
