What is a Student Trustee?

Student Trustees represent all students in the Board (approximately 12,000).

One Student Trustee will represent the Western Constituency of the Board, representing St. Paul Catholic Secondary School, St. Theresa Catholic Secondary School, and Nicholson Catholic College, as well as their elementary family of schools. 

One Student Trustee will represent the Eastern constituency of the Board, representing Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School and Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School, as well as their elementary family of schools.

One Student Trustee will represent Indigenous students in the Board, secondary and elementary.

What is required of the selected candidate?

  • The position requires the Student Trustees to attend two meetings per month. Most meetings occur at the ALCDSB's office in Napanee. However, special sessions can be held at other locations.  
  • The Student Trustees sit on ad hoc committees of the Board requiring Trustee representation.
  • The Student Trustees are registered members of the Ontario Student Trustees' Association (OSTA). This is the network of all Student Trustees in the province, including both Public and Catholic boards. The Student Trustees also belong to the Catholic Board Council (CBC).
  • The Student Trustees meet regularly (approximately three meetings each school year) with the Student Senate, of which he or she is Chair. The Student Senate is made up of Student Council Presidents from each of the Board's five secondary schools. It is the Student Trustees responsibility to inform the Council of issues affecting the Board's students, to gather student opinions in order to fulfill the job as their representative and to allow each Student Council to share their events and ideas with one another.
