210: Electoral Wards

EFFECTIVE: April 24, 2019
REVISED: January 29, 2020
REVIEW: 2022-2023

1.0 POLICY

The Board has determined that, pursuant to Section 76 of the Education Act, 2019, the nomination and election of trustees shall be by electoral ward.

The Board believes it is best served by an electoral ward system, with each ward being equitable, in terms of the electoral population served.

Electoral wards will be established based primarily on representation by population.

Each ward’s population should follow the Electoral Boundaries commission’s recommendation that the population of a proposed ward should not vary +/- 25% from the average ward population.

Sturgeon Public Schools will also give consideration to the geographic area served and communities served in establishing its electoral wards.

2.0 GUIDELINES

2.1 The Board has determined that there shall be seven (7) electoral wards as specified in the Exhibit to this policy.

2.2 Any changes to the electoral ward boundaries shall be by Ministerial Order.
