Sunshine Coast School District to Review Number of Trustees and Electoral Boundaries

Should the Sunshine Coast reduce the number of school trustees? Should trustees be elected “at large?”  At last night’s meeting (Jan. 11, 2011) we passed a motion to look at cutting the number of trustees representing our district from five to seven, and to also look at how trustees are elected.

These are both valid considerations to look at, and could result in significant change in our district. There are solid arguments on both sides of this debate, and I will endeavour to follow up with some balanced information. Hopefully others will chime in as well.

Trustees are the representatives of the public and the public pays the bills, so the next step will be consulting with our community.
