Red Deer’s public school district is looking to raise the profile of public school education and the candidates running for office. Nomination Day is Monday, Sept. 18 with the election on Monday, Oct. 16.

To support knowledge and awareness of candidates and issues, the District will host a webpage with Candidate Profiles as well as “Questions of the Week,” which will open on Monday, Sept. 11. Check it out at

“In the past an election forum was hosted with a limited turn out. The Committee felt a website with candidate profiles and answers to questions would be more useful for the electorate to make an informed decision come Election Day,” said Bruce Buruma, Corporate Secretary to the Board.

A committee of the City Wide School Council as well as District Administration is overseeing the process to ensure the content and direction is open and unbiased.

For more information, please contact Buruma at 403-342-3708, or email
