The trustees will serve a term of four years, beginning December 5, 2018 at the inaugural Board meeting. The newly developed Board of Trustees will also be joined by this year’s student trustee, Anna Szumska. The Board has a current enrollment of over 22,000 students in 41 elementary schools and 9 secondary schools.
