With report cards coming home, this is a good time of year to review your child’s progress and to set goals for the rest of the school year.
 
As trustees, our goals are set out in the Board Multi-Year Plan. In the coming months, trustees will be reviewing and updating this plan. This process will include opportunities for public input, and trustees will be out in the communities talking about this. More information will be shared about this in the spring.  
 
Developing and reviewing the Multi-Year Plan is just one of our responsibilities as publicly elected officials. Trustee responsibilities also include hiring the Director of Education, setting Board policies and the annual budget, and communicating with the public.
 
This is a good time to learn more about the role of trustees with the next municipal election taking place later this year on October 22, 2018. York Region District School Board has 12 trustees, elected by ratepayers. As a trustee, listening and communicating with families is an important part of my role. Students, families and members of the public are welcome to attend and observe any public Board, Advisory or Board Committee meetings and to share their views with us on policy and Board governance.  
 
As we move into the second half of the year, I hope that you are seeing evidence of your child’s learning and progress, and finding opportunities to get involved in their learning and the life of the school.
 
I wish you all the best for a successful second term.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Cynthia Cordova - Georgina
 

 
Message from the Chair
 
I’m pleased to share that at last night’s Board Meeting, trustees voted for a by-election to fill the vacant Georgina Trustee position.
 
Having a by-election means the residents of Georgina have a fair and democratic process to select their representative. We wanted to ensure a fair and transparent process and that’s why we held a community consultation to ensure community concerns were heard.
 
I want to thank everyone who shared their thoughts and feedback on the replacement process.  A number of people attended information sessions in Keswick and Sutton, and also provided feedback through social media and by contacting us directly.
 
Following yesterday’s meeting, Board staff members will contact the Town of Georgina to initiate the process for a by-election. The Town will coordinate the by-election in accordance with the Municipal Elections Act. Once dates, locations and other relevant information have been determined, that information will be available for voters. The Board website will continue to be updated as information becomes available.

For residents interested in running for the position or learning more about the role of Trustees, I encourage you to look at the information available on our website.
Sincerely,
 
Loralea Carruthers
Board Chair
