Student Trustees represent the voice of approximately 247,000 students in the Toronto District School Board. They are elected members of the Board of Trustees and sit alongside the adult Trustees at board and committee meetings and act as a link to students, the Board and school communities. Student Trustees are members of the Student Senate and work closely with Student Senate Executives and school communities to empower and promote student voice and engagement across the district.
Official candidates and their campaign videos will be revealed on Monday, June 21, 2021. Stay tuned!
Voting will take place online on Thursday, June 24, 2021.
Please note that due to the impact of COVID-19, Student Senate Elections will be held separately in the Fall.
