Hard to believe it has been four years but here I am seeking re-election for Public School Trustee for Zone 6 Rideau-Rockcliffe and Alta Vista. Although I came into the position as trustee with a good knowledge of the school board, I have learned a lot about how things work these past four years. I will take the lessons learned to be an even more effective advocate for high quality public education in my zone and throughout the public school board.
I believe I have been a positive influence for students and the community. I hope you think so too, and will vote for me Monday, October 22, 2018.

Chris Ellis Signature

Chris has been a volunteer in schools and at the School Board since his now grown children were young. He has led and participated in activities from fundraising to policy discussions and worked consistently to involve other parents and encourage the School Board to strengthen its consultations on important decisions.  His experience means he understands the education system and its complex issues and knows how to get things done.

As trustee, Chris consulted widely and took leadership on issues of importance for the students and parents of Alta Vista & Rideau-Rockcliffe. He  worked hard to increase student success and enhance the vital contributing factors of strong schools, parent engagement and community connections.
