2022 Catholic Trustee Election Resources
Please share with Catholic School Councils and any parent and community groups.
Catholic Trustees play a key leadership role in setting the strategic direction for their local Catholic school boards and supporting efforts to enhance academic achievement and well-being of students. That is why educating potential trustee candidates and encouraging civic engagement is so important.
With the Nomination and Campaign Period for the next Municipal Election beginning on May 2, we wanted to let you know the following resources are now available for Catholic school boards and their communities. This includes OCSTA publications and many updated resources from the Ontario Education Services Corporation. OESC, on behalf of the four school board/trustee associations, is coordinating a series of resources to support trustee candidates and communities in the upcoming October 24, 2022 Municipal and School Board Elections:
· Becoming a Catholic Trustee - https://www.ocsta.on.ca/ocsta/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Becoming-a-Catholic-School-Trustee.pdf
· Catholic Ratepayer Brochure: https://www.ocsta.on.ca/ocsta/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/OCSTA-Brochure.pdf
· A website button (attached) that can be linked to https://elections.ontarioschooltrustees.org/.
The website (developed and managed by the Ontario Education Services Corporation – OESC) includes an overview of the role of trustees, how to become a trustee, how to vote, education in Ontario, as well as archived 2018 and 2014 election information and results. As 2022 candidates provide information, it will be added to the revised website.
All candidates are welcome to submit their profiles to [email protected]. Please include your name, school board and ward. You may also include a photo, a brief biography, your social media handles, email address and website URL with your profile.
Thank you for your continued support.
