What is the Student Reps B.C. campaign? Student Reps B.C. is a campaign that aims to have accurate student representation in every British Columbian school district. We aim to reach our goal by talking with politicians, such as MLAs, school board trustees, and district staff. We want to talk about the importance of student trustees and the issue of student representation in British Columbia.
What are student trustees? Student trustees are elected officials that actively advocate for student's voice. Student trustees are elected by the students within the school board to ensure proper communication of student issues and opinions. They are active participants in board meetings and may offer suggestions or motions (dependent on school board).
