Trustee Term of Office

Notice of Motion Re:  Board of Trustee Term of Office

 

As you are aware, the city was successful in changing the term of office for City Councillors from a three-year term to a four-year term.  In the past school board elections have coincided with city council elections.  There would be an estimated cost of approximately $85,000.00 for YCS and YK1 to run our own election.  A change in term of office would require a change to the Education Act, which presently states that the term of office for Trustees can be two or three years. 
 
The following motion will be brought forward for debate at our Regular Board meeting, scheduled for February 20, 2019.  "That YCS collaborate with YK1 to request the Department of Education, Culture and Employment change the Education Act to allow trustees to serve a four-year term."
 
We welcome your feedback on this topic which can be sent to our Board Chair, Miles Welsh at miles.welsh@ycs.nt.ca or Vice-Chair, Erin Currie at erin.currie@ycs.nt.ca.
