November 15th is election day for the municipal governments and school board trustees. Education seems to be on the public mind post labour disruption and for the first time in a very, very long time we have a full slate of people running to be school board trustee. COPACS and the Saanich Teachers Association are co-hosting an all candidates debate for those running for the school board this week. Please encourage your communities to vote in the upcoming elections and to learn more about the candidates running for school board trustee. This is an opportunity for parents to have a direct and significant voice into how our district is run and managed. Please find attached a Poster for the COPACS and STA debates this week as well as links to important resources and information on who is running. http://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/saanich-school-district-candidate-profile-information-1.1468103 http://saanichteachers.com/ Sincerely James T.
