Board of Education
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Board of Education of Mission Public Schools is comprised of five School Trustees. As locally-elected representatives, Trustees are accountable to the public for the board's collective decisions and​​ the delivery and quality of educational services.  The Board represents the School District as a whole and no longer assigns School Liaison Appointments. Members of the public are encouraged to contact any Board member with their inquiries.​ To email the entire board, use email trustees@mpsd.ca​.
