SD73 Board of Education Trustee Candidate Forum set for Tuesday October
16th at 7pm at
Henry Grube Education Centre
The District Parent Advisory Committee of SD73 is pleased to
announce they will be hosting a public forum for SD73 Board of Education
Trustee candidates on October 16th, 2018 at 7pm at the Henry Grube
Education Centre. The purpose of this
event is to introduce the public to the candidates running for Board of
Education Trustee positions (Area 1) in the October 20th
election. The objective is to inform as
many people as possible the positions of each candidate, as well as to allow
SD73 parents and families to ask questions of the candidates.
There are 10 people running for five (5) trustee positions
from Trustee Electoral Area 1 for a
four (4) year term:
will be Shane Woodford from Radio NL.
Following introductions, there will be a question and answer
session. The audience will have an
opportunity to submit questions, in writing.
After the questions are read, each candidate will then be given time to
engage their communities in building and maintaining a school system that
reflects local priorities, values and expectations. School trustees listen to
their communities, guide the work of their school district and set plans,
policies and the annual budget. Reflecting the strength of local
representation, boards report back to their communities on how students are
doing. Boards are directly accountable to the people they serve. (British Columbia School Trustees Association (BCSTA))
