Election of trustees for the Saskatoon Board of Education will be part of the City of Saskatoon's local government election scheduled for Monday, Nov. 9, 2020.
Saskatoon Public Schools is governed by a 10-person elected Board of Education. The school division is organized into 10 wards for purpose of elections but once elected the members of the Board of Education represent all students in the division.
Elected trustees are an integral part of education in Saskatchewan. Trustees have the responsibility to ensure that primary and secondary education put the needs of students first, making our schools, communities and our province stronger. The role of the trustee is to contribute to the Board as it carries out its mandate to achieve its mission and goals. The Board believes its ability to fulfill its obligations is enhanced when leadership and guidance are forthcoming from within its membership.
Nomination papers for Trustee on the Saskatoon Board of Education are available online. When public office hours resume following the COVID-19 pandemic, nomination forms may also be picked up at the Board of Education office (310 – 21st Street East), or at City Hall (222 Third Avenue North).
Completed nomination papers must be submitted to the civic election office located at 226 Cardinal Crescent. The office will officially open to the public/candidates on July 2, 2020, and will be open Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed on statutory holidays). More information about the 2020 local government election is available on the City of Saskatoon website.
