Elections for Boards

School boards must hold elections for parent and staff representatives every three years (i.e. at each triennial election).

Elections for student representative board members must be held annually in September in schools with students in years 9 and above.

A board may also decide to adopt a staggered (mid-term) election cycle where half the parent representatives are elected at a mid-term election (18 months after the triennial election), and the remainder is elected at the triennial election. 

Board member eligibility

Before anyone becomes a school board member they must confirm they are eligible to be a board member. You can view the main reasons someone cannot be on a board here.
