This isn't just an opportunity to vote for your community's next School Board representative.
Your vote has an impact on...
The pizza lunches that felt like a warm and cheesy reward after weeks of learning.
The arts or woodworking classes that led you towards new career opportunities.
The riverside cleanup that showed you the value of stepping up and helping out in your community.
The teachers who helped you recognize that you had a knack for math and science.
These are the moments that molded you into the person you are today.
Trustees may not have been as physically present as teachers and staff in all those moments, but they were present in the board meetings and committee hearings that made them happen.
From kindergarten to Grade 12, they impact every decision in Ontario's public schools. And they're accountable to you, the voter.
Trustees are on the ballot, and if you care about public education and the future of our province, learning more about the candidates and voting should be a top priority.
