Trustee Determination and Distribution

Prior to each regular election, the board of trustees of each district school board must distribute the positions of the members to be elected across the board’s area of jurisdiction. The steps are set out in O. Reg. 412/00 and the process is referred to as trustee determination and distribution.

The Trustee Determination and Distribution Guide for Ontario District School Boards provides information to help boards with this process, as well as a Q&A section with frequently asked questions about election rules.
