At the Inaugural Meeting of the Halton District School Board on Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2022, Trustees elected the Chair and Vice-Chair for the upcoming year. This is an annual process with the 11 HDSB trustees choosing from within their colleagues for these roles. In addition, the HDSB welcomes four new Trustees for the 2022-2026 term:
- Naveed Ahmed, Milton - Wards 3 & 4
- Carole Baxter, Oakville - Wards 1 & 2
- Matthew Diodati, Burlington - Wards 1 & 2

Returning trustees include: Trustees Kelly Amos (Oakville - 5 & 7), Amy Collard (Burlington - Ward 5), Donna Danielli (Milton - Wards 1 & 2), Jeanne Gray (Halton Hills - Wards 1, 2, 3 & 4), Joanna Oliver (Oakville - Ward 4), Tanya Rocha (Oakville - Wards 3 & 6) and Margo Shuttleworth (Burlington - Ward 4).
Shuttleworth was re-elected as Chair for 2022-2023 and Rocha elected as Vice-Chair for 2022-2023.
“My goal is to ensure that Trustees, staff and community continue to work together in a way that fosters respect and trust,” says Shuttleworth. “We are a team of great leaders in many different capacities and I feel it is important to draw on the strengths that we all bring to the table.”
“We have new horizons ahead and with the guidance and collaborative relationship we continue to create with our staff, community and students, I know Halton can continue to be seen as a leader in the Ontario public education system.”
