Board of Trustees


Our division is governed by a board of nine trustees who are accountable to the public for the safety, quality, and cost of education via human resource practices, policies, and budgetary decisions. Trustees are elected every four years during municipal elections and, in RETSD, meet the first and third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the RETSD Administration Offices, 589 Roch St. Meetings are live-streamed on Microsoft Teams and accessible to the public. Public board meeting links are available prior to each meeting on the RETSD website. Read more about school boards and trusteeship.

The board of trustees has identified the following as its priorities for the 2022–23 school year:

  • Conduct a review of the current communications plan and develop additional strategies to enhance internal and external communications and increase community engagement
  • Draft policies for the Trustee Code of Conduct and Public Sector Action Plan
  • Develop a short- and long-term evaluation process for the secretary-treasurer and superintendent
  • Determine the parameters for a facility review and then conduct the facility review

Virtual Community Consultation

On January 25, 2022, the board of trustees held a Virtual Community Consultation event with members of the RETSD community. The board shared the results of a ThoughtExchange (online questionnaire), as well as information regarding budget deliberations. To view the full reports, click here: Virtual Community Consultation
