Results of the School Board of Trustees Elections

Publication Details

These reports summarise information on the triennial boards of trustees elections, and mid-term elections. The reports focus on the election of parent representatives to school boards of trustees.

Boards of trustees of state and state integrated schools must hold elections for parent and staff representatives every three years. A board may also decide to adopt a mid-term election cycle where half the number of its parent representatives are elected at a mid-term election (18 months after the triennial election) and the remainder are elected at the triennial election.

Triennial elections were held in 1998, 2001,2004, 2007, and 2010.

A by-election can occur at any stage in the election cycle if an elected trustee leaves the board and thereby creates a casual vacancy. Although the major changes in board membership occur in triennial election years, there is still some fluctuation in intervening years due to casual vacancies, by-elections, and mid-term elections.
