The Government of Prince Edward Island has committed to reinstating an elected school board for the Public School Branch (PSB) in the 2019 Mandate letters. The Department of Education and Lifelong Learning is seeking input into elected board-related matters including, a suitable number of elected trustees, electoral districts, election date, method of voting (online, traditional ballot, mail-in ballot), candidate eligibility, increasing civic engagement and a potential number of candidates, increasing voter turnout, and a nomination process for candidates.




The online survey for Public Schools Branch Board of Directors Election Process Consultations only takes a few minutes but can help direct the future of education on Prince Edward Island.
