Local Elections

Local school trustee elections allow the community an important opportunity to lead and oversee our valuable investment in public education. Trustees are hardworking community leaders who come together in the context of a board in support of student success. The work is demanding, but important and rewarding.

The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows Board of Education is comprised of five trustees representing the community of Maple Ridge and two trustees representing the community of Pitt Meadows. Trustees are elected every four years at the same time as the mayor and city council for the two municipalities.

Wondering what it’s like being a trustee? See our school trustee infographic.
