Seven trustees will sit on the Cowichan Valley School District 79 Board of Education following elections on Nov. 15.

Education Minister Peter Fassbender signed a Ministerial Order to establish the number of trustees. A media release indicates the decision was reached as a result of continuing input from the community during the past two years regarding the size of the board.

Written and verbal submissions received by Official Trustee Mike McKay and forwarded to Fassbender, were also taken into consideration.

McKay was appointed to his position after the previous nine-member board failed to submit a required balanced budget to the ministry. He will remain in the role until the new board is sworn in after the November elections.
