As part of the municipal general elections, Albertans vote for their school board trustees. A general election takes place once every four years.
This page contains important information regarding election procedures, forms and regulations for school districts/authorities.
The School Board Elections Information Package below has been developed to help guide you through the elections process. It walks you through important information about general election procedures, forms and regulations for school authorities.
This information package has been developed to assist school boards in conducting an election in accordance with the Local Authorities Elections Act (LAEA), the Education Act and any other relevant regulations and legislation.
It is important to note that this package is intended to be used as a reference for returning officers who are planning an upcoming school board election, by-election, or vote on a question or bylaw. There have been a number of changes to the LAEA since the 2017 general election.
