Are you a student with an issue, concern or idea for positive change for students?

One grade 10 student is elected to the role of student trustee by fellow students, for a 2-year term, every year. For full details on student trustee elections and how you can run for student trustee click here.
Each secondary school is allowed to have one vote in the election of each Student Trustee. The voting delegate must be selected by the school principal in September and must regularly attend CSLIT meetings throughout the school year as a student council or student leadership delegate.
Notice seeking the nomination of one candidate for one of the positions of Student Trustee from each TCDSB Catholic secondary school is sent to each school principal and Student Councils for posting and communication to students in November of each school year.
The student trustee election meeting is held before April 1st of each school year.
