The provincial government has taken the next step in combining its English language school boards with the appointment of 12 new trustees.
Education Minister Alan McIsaac called the appointment a big step in the process of combining the boards.
“We’re very pleased with the 12 who have agreed to come on board for this interim period,” he said.
In April the government introduced legislation to delay school board elections in the new English Language School Board until May 2014.
The province put out a call for applications for the new trustees this summer and 67 people applied for the positions.
Until the new board takes over Jan. 1, Patsy MacLean and Gary Doucette will act as interim trustees.
Doucette is also one of the trustees appointed to the new board.
