School trustees put their support behind the current chair and vice chair of the board during elections Wednesday evening.
Korleen Carreras will remain as chair and Elaine Yamamoto as vice chair for a second year in a row.
“I am so grateful to have the support of my trustee colleagues around the table and I am absolutely honoured to take on the role of chair for a second year,” said Carreras.
“Last year was such a busy year and we accomplished a great many things. I am looking forward to what we can achieve for the coming year,” Carreras continued.
School board chair and vice chair are voted on annually each November. The positions can be filled by the same person for two electoral terms, or for up to eight years.
Yamamoto thanked her fellow trustees as well for their support.
