The British Columbia School Trustees Association
Serving and supporting B.C.’s boards of education since 1905
BCSTA is driven by the following beliefs and goals:
A high-quality public education system is the foundation of a democratic society
Improving student achievement is the key work of locally elected boards of education
The interests of B.C. students are best met through local decision-making with an engaged community
Providing a strong, representative voice for boards of education throughout the province is important
Helping to build effective boards by providing development, communications and support services
BCSTA recently received several letters from Minister Jennifer Whiteside of the Ministry of Education and Child Care in response to a number of motions from our annual general meeting.
New Trustee Orientation and Academy
Our next major event for trustees takes place December 1-3.
Trustee Knowledge Series
BCSTA’s Indigenous Education Committee has launched the Trustee Knowledge Series in response to the B.C. Tripartite Education Agreement to help trustees, as well as members of the general public, learn more about Indigenous issues in education.
BCSTA’s Updated Learning Guides are a valuable resource for boards of education.
Each year BCSTA selects graduating B.C. public school students who have displayed exemplary citizenship within their school and community as recipients of the Scholarships for Student Citizenship.
Trustees can access items such as district policies, meeting minutes, the Learning Guide, discussions and more on the BCSTA HUB.
