Trustees in the School District of Mystery Lake are set to discuss the possibility of inviting a student to their board.
The agenda for tonight’s meeting says that provinces like Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia all have student members on school boards.
The student representative isn’t permitted a vote, but does get to bend the ears of trustees to the issues facing pupils and can help with policy creation.
The agenda says a student rep can also help the Board “have a better understanding of student needs.”
