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


Trustee Elections

Local elections in B.C. take place October 15.

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.


Trustees can access items such as district policies, meeting minutes, the Learning Guide, discussions and more on the BCSTA HUB.
