Alberta Student Trustees

The Alberta School Act and Regulations does not currently mandate Student Trustees to sit on boards of education in Alberta.

Edmonton: The Edmonton Board of Education created a seat for a Student Trustee that was elected to represent student voice starting in 2013. Through a District-level election process, a student is identified as the successful Student Trustee candidate. This student sits, as a non-voting member, on the Board of Trustees for a one-year term. Each high school is asked to run a selection process that will result in a single candidate coming forward to participate in the District’s election of a Student Trustee.
