Interested in becoming a STUDENT TRUSTEE?

Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board is committed to hearing the voices of students through Student Trustees. Student views are considered in the decisions made by the Board of Trustees. Being a Student Trustee gives students valuable learning opportunities and experiences.

We are holding an information session so that interested students can learn more about this role.

chosen by their peers. Steps in the process include:

  • A Student Trustee Information Session to learn more about this important role.
  • Candidates apply between March 19-31.
  • Eligible Indigenous Student Trustee candidates attend a CC:ROSE meeting, and are appointed by their peers.
  • Eligible Student Trustee candidates record answers to questions, to be posted on the
    Student Trustee Elections web page before voting occurs.
  • HWDSB students in grades 7-12 vote for candidates from April 26-30. Votes are tallied by school to create each school’s top two choices.
  • HWDSB Student Trustees for 2021-22 are announced through a Board report in May 2021.
