FAQ

What is the TDSB Student SuperCouncil?

The TDSB Student SuperCouncil, is a school based student council. Democratically elected students from all four quadrants in the TDSB form this council and allows the student voice to be heard in the TDSB Boardroom. SuperCouncil holds and/or participates in meetings throughout the year: Executive Meetings, Quadrant Meetings, Sub-Committee Meetings and TDSB Boardroom Meetings.

What does the SuperCouncil do?

SuperCouncil builds a bridge between the TDSB student body and TDSB Executives allowing the student voice to be heard in the Boardroom. We discuss issues and concerns, plan board-wide initiatives, foster student leadership and facilitate communication between the TDSB Boardroom and all students in the TDSB.

What is SuperCouncil's relationship with the two Student Trustees?

Like the SuperCouncil Executives, the two Student Trustees are elected democratically at an annual elections conference. They represent over 250,000 students in TDSB and sit on the Board of Trustees during TDSB Board meetings. The student voice is brought to the TDSB Boardroom through SuperCouncil and the Student Trustees.
