Election Planning is used by boards to organise their schools' trustee election campaigns, to ensure the elections are run well, and the most is made of the opportunity to involve your community. To assist with the election planning process we have a number of board resources available.
Remember, the school trustee elections involve everyone - people from throughout the community, including parents who can be school trustees, with this planner providing practical help for boards to run a successful election. The planner's primary use is in providing ideas on how to attract enthusiasm and support, as well as giving you clear guidelines for the formal steps involved.
