Student Trustees

Limestone Learning Foundation

The Limestone District School Board has established three positions for Student Trustees to provide for the interests of students within its school system. One Student Trustee is elected to represent urban, one Student Trustee is elected to represent rural schools, and one Student Trustee is elected to represent Indigenous students to ensure accurate representation for all secondary students in the board.  

2021-2022 Student Trustees:

  • Breanna Roy, Indigenous Student Trustee, attending Napanee District Secondary School
  • Tanesha Duncan, Urban Student Trustee, attending Loyalist Collegiate & Vocational Institute
  • Shana JohnsonRural Student Trustee attending North Addington Education Centre

The Student Trustee position provides for the active involvement of students in their education and allows them to provide greater insight into student activities, programs and needs. This important role also encourages more student involvement in the district’s governance activities, and a greater awareness and understanding of mutual issues between and among the Board, school staff and students.

One Student Trustee is elected from our rural schools (Ernestown Secondary School, Granite Ridge Education Centre, Napanee District Secondary School, North Addington Education Centre and Sydenham High School). Another Student Trustee is elected from our urban schools (Bayridge Secondary School, Frontenac Secondary School, Kingston Secondary School, Loyalist Collegiate & Vocational Institute, and La Salle Secondary School). A third Student Trustee is elected to represent Indigenous students in the board.

Student Trustees participate in voting of the Board of Trustees, however, their votes are non-binding. Student representation on the Board is further outlined in 
Board Policy 9: Board Operations.

Student Trustee Elections

The position of Student Trustee is open to all senior students of the Limestone District School Board who meet the eligibility criteria listed on the Student Trustee Application Form. This policy extends the candidacy to not only the highest two ranking officials of the respective school’s Student Council, but to any senior student in Grade 10 or 11, and returning Grade 12 students.

Candidates must meet the eligibility criteria for the next academic year, and submit a completed application prior to the election. Candidates must prepare a speech not exceeding two minutes to present to the incoming and outgoing members of the InterSchool Council who vote on the positions. The same application process is used for the Indigenous Student Trustee, however, this student is selected by Indigenous Student representatives from each secondary school. The elections are generally held in the spring for the following school year. The Student Trustees may occupy the position for a one-year term only unless they are subsequently re-elected during regular Student Trustee elections.

Students are encouraged to reach out to current Student Trustees if they have questions or would like to learn more about the position. 

Application Forms:

Questions  regarding the election process, or any of the Student Trustee positions, should be directed to Mr. Chris Morrow, Vice-Principal at Ernestown Secondary School.

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
