Red Deer Public School District

Raising the profile of school board elections

With just over one week left in the school trustee election campaign, Red Deer Public Schools continues to provide information to ensure that the community is informed about the choices available to them as electors.

"A motto for  Red Deer Public Schools is 'Your Children, Our Students, Everyone's Future!," commented Bruce Buruma, Corporate Secretary to the Board. "Public school education shapes the future of our community. We all benefit from and depend on public education, it shapes the future of our community. Whether or not you have children in the school system, decisions about our schools impact the entire community."

The District has established an election website that provides profiles of each of the candidates for school board trustees. The site also has a series of questions and answers that trustee's have been invited to respond to. Go to
