Elected School Board Trustees
Through the Education Act, Alberta’s legislation has delegated some authority for the governance of education to school boards. As statutory corporations, school boards have obligations to perform and they have been given powers to carry out these tasks.
The citizens of our Wards elect Trustees to govern The Livingstone Range School Division (LRSD) on their behalf. Trustee elections occur every four years, during the same time as municipal elections.
The role of the Trustee is to be a contributing member of the Board as it carries out its governance mandate in order to achieve Livingstone Range School Division’s mission.
Livingstone Range School Division promotes and encourages its interested citizens to run for the office of elected school board Trustee. The Division is committed to providing an environment that will give all candidates fair access to the electorate.
The next Trustee election will be held on October 18, 2021.
