A recent article in 24 Hours Vancouver reports that Vancouver is considering having student school trustees who could bring motions forward and actually vote on them. Student trustees have been in Ontario school systems since 1997.

The VSB is expected to submit the motion to the B.C. School Trustees Association by Feb. 22.”
