2018 School Trustee Elections

On October 20, 2018 elections for local school trustees will be held in conjunction with the 2018 BC General Local Election.

Local school trustee elections allow the community an important opportunity to choose representatives who will lead and oversee our valuable investment in public education.  Trustees are hardworking community leaders who come together in the context of a board in support of student success. The work is demanding, but important and rewarding.


If you are considering running for school trustee, we have provided resources below to guide you in the upcoming 2018 BC General Local Election.  Please direct all questions regarding Trustee Elections for the Sea to Sky School District to Sarah Saunders at the Secretary Treasurer’s Office, ssaunders@sd48.bc.ca.

If you are running again, or considering running for school trustee, we thank you for your commitment to public education in BC.
