The election of Student Trustees for 2020-2021 will be taking place on Thursday, June 11, 2020. Students in Grades 6 to 11 will have the opportunity to elect two Student Trustees through an online voting process.

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.

Applications closed on Thursday, May 14, 2020. 

Official candidates and their campaign videos will be revealed on Thursday, June 4, 2020. Stay tuned! 

Voting will take place online on Thursday, June 11, 2020.
