The Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board recognizes the benefits that accrue when students play an active role in the day to day life of the Board, and in educational planning. The Student Leadership Group enables students to participate in the decision-making process and allows student voices to be heard.

The Student Leadership Group is a committee of students responsible for soliciting, gathering and collating information from secondary school students throughout the jurisdiction of the Board to determine student issues, priorities, and concerns. The Student Leadership Group communicates this information to the Board through the Student Trustee. The Student Leadership Group selects a Student Trustee, for each school year, for appointment to the Board of Trustees of the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board.

The Student Leadership Group consists of a representative from each secondary school. To qualify for the position of student government leader, a student must be registered full time at a Board secondary school and be at least 14 years of age and no more than 21 years of age during the term. Each secondary school has a process for selecting its student government leader. For information on how a specific school selects a student government leader, please contact your current student government leader or school Principal.
