The nine trustees who govern our division are responsible and dedicated to the delivery of fair and equal public education within Sunrise.

Their areas of responsibility include educational accountability, fiscal responsibility, community leadership, accountability to the provincial government and the community, appointment of senior administration and board succession planning.
