Durham District School Board
Ignite Learning
Contact Your Trustee

Public school trustees are the critical link between communities and school boards. They are elected by taxpayers during municipal elections every four years and are directly accountable to the community. The DDSB is currently governed by 11 trustees and have been elected to serve from December 1, 2014, to November 30, 2018.  In addition, three student trustees are selected from the student body to serve on the board of trustees for a one-year term.

​Each December, the Board holds its annual internal elections to establish the Board Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Vice Chairperson of the Standing Committee and Chair of the Education Finance Committee.​
