Interested in becoming a Student Trustee? Attend the Student Trustee Information Session
Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) is preparing for the 2023-24 Student Trustee election process. A Student Trustee is a member of the Board of Trustees and part of the deliberations and decision-making of all matters brought before the Board.
Some critical responsibilities of the Student Trustee are to represent the interests of students during deliberations of the Board of Trustees and to communicate Board decisions to students. Student views are considered in the decisions made by the Board of Trustees. Being a Student Trustee gives students valuable learning opportunities and experiences.
HWDSB is committed to hearing the voices of students through Student Trustees. Two Student Trustees for 2023-24 will be selected through an election process.
We encourage any secondary students interested in being Student Trustees to attend the Student Trustee Virtual Information Session to learn more about the role and election process.
