Marcus Hoople

I am running for St. Albert Public School Board Trustee because I strongly believe in public education and I want to continue strengthening the education system. It is my strong belief that all students deserve a world-class and accessible public education system.

When elected, I would stand for:

  • Working with students, staff, parents/guardians, and other stakeholders to ensure the Public School System in St. Albert reflects current and future needs.

  • Advocating Governments for adequate funding models, a strong curriculum, safe and healthy school environments, and resources for a growing school district.

  • Safe spaces, so all students and staff feel welcome and secure.

  • Inclusive and barrier free schools for all students because we are a diverse district and need to ensure ALL students have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

  • Student-centred learning.

  • Engaged global citizens.

  • Supports to help with gaps in education created during the pandemic.

  • Supports to help address the mental health concerns of both students and staff.

As a Public Board Trustee, I will work with fellow trustees and the district to establish a vision, set goals for student achievement, assess goals to measure progress, and promote accountability throughout the School Board. I will also work to allocate the district’s resources responsibly and create collaborative relationships—both inside the board and across the community. I commit to lead by example with open communication, collaboration, and adaptability with the clear goal of always putting students first.

I have chosen to be a resident of St. Albert for 10 years, because it is a strong and welcoming community to raise a family. My husband and I have one child in the school district and have been actively involved in their education. I am the current Board Chair for St. Albert Further Education, a volunteer with Special Olympics, a team leader for the Fringe, and a liturgical artist for several churches. I have also volunteered for school councils, school fundraising committees, and church boards over the years. I have a management diploma from the Northern Institute of Technology and have worked in the fields of management, visual merchandising, and event coordinating.

Please reach out to me, as I would like to hear your thoughts on Public Education.



Let’s continue to build a strong Public Education system here in St. Albert. On October 18th, please vote Marcus Hoople for St. Albert Public School Trustee.
