As required by the School Act, the Board authorizes payment of Trustee Remuneration and an Expense Allowance as follows:

  1. The Trustees of School District No. 52 (Prince Rupert) are paid an annual amount. Rates are set for Trustee, Vice Chair and Chair. The annual amount is paid in twelve (12) equal instalments.
  2. The annual amount is determined as the average amount paid to Trustees, Vice Chair and Chair, respectively, of the School Districts comprising the Northwest and Northern Interior Regions. The data used in the computation is supplied by the British Columbia School Trustee Association.
  3. The annual amount is revised in even numbered years, based on the average from the previous year. The rate is effective January 1st of that year.
  4. Trustees receive a monthly allowance of $75 ($900 per annum) for telecommunication costs incurred by the Trustee. In even-numbered years this allowance will be compared to the average allowance in the data supplied by the British Columbia School Trustee Association. If the allowance is less than the average allowance, the Board will consider an increase to the allowance.
  5. Policy 7120 sets out the rules for the Travel and Subsistence Allowance paid to Trustees traveling on Board business.
