Congratulating Vancouver School Board elected-trustees
Senior leadership and all employees of the Vancouver School District express sincere congratulations to Vancouver's newly elected and returning school trustees. Together as a Board, they will serve learners, their families and public education system for a four-year term.
Following the October 20 civic election, four incumbent trustees and five newly elected trustees were selected by Vancouver voters to lead governance of the public school system in Vancouver. The newly elected Board of Education is:
- Fraser Ballantyne, NPA (incumbent)
- Lois Chan-Pedley, Green
- Carmen Cho, NPA
- Janet Fraser, Green (incumbent)
- Estrellita Gonzalez, Green (incumbent)
- Oliver Hanson, NPA
- Barb Parrott, COPE
- Jennifer Reddy, OneCity
- Allan Wong, Vision Vancouver (incumbent)
District staff also appreciate the dedication, commitment and work of the trustees elected in last year's by-election, as well as every person who stood for candidacy in the 2018 civic election.
The Inaugural Board meeting with the newly elected Board of Education will be held at the District's Education Centre on November 5, 2018 beginning at 7 pm. There, trustees will be sworn in and they will elect a Chairperson and Vice Chairperson.
