Our Board of Trustees form the backbone of Fort McMurray Public School District (FMPSD) operations. This year, trustee elections will be held on Monday, October 16, 2017. Nomination deadline is on Monday, September 18, 2017 to fill seven positions.

Jeff Thompson, Chair, FMPSD Board of Trustees has been on our Board for over 16 years. A passionate advocate for FMPSD, he encourages everyone to join the Board.

“When it comes to education Fort McMurray is no different from any other community in Alberta, we need individuals with a passion for education strongly advocating for needs that are unique to our community.”

“The role of trustees does involve time commitment, but it is very rewarding and brings personal satisfaction knowing that your efforts and contributions have impacted the children and students in the region,” Thompson says.

Board orientation for returning and newly appointed trustees will be on Monday, October 23 at 3 p.m., at the District Office Board room.
