After School District #27 (Cariboo-Chilcotin) Zone 7 (Chilcotin) position was declared vacant this past October, due to the former Trustee for Zone 7, Joyce Cooper, missing too many meetings. Zone 3 (District of 100 Mile House) SD27 Trustee Chris Pettman has handed in his resignation, effective December 30th, 2016 and this will be reported to the Board of Education for SD27 at their meeting tomorrow evening
SD27 Staff have recommended the Board of Education for School District #27 (Cariboo-Chilcotin) pass the following two motions:
a) THAT the Board of Education advise the Minister of Education of the requirement of the 2017 Zone 3 Trustee By-Election
b) THAT the Board of Education advise the District of 100 Mile House that a by-election is required for Zone 3, School Trustee.
As of this writing, it is not known why Trustee Pettman has chosen to resign however it is reasonable to assume a by-election for his position will be held in the 1st Quarter of 2017 (January - March)
