A spokesman for the board says the candidates presented themselves to the remaining trustees in a secret ballot.
At the end of May, Dupuis and Reitzel resigned in protest against the board’s decision to hoist the Pride flag.
At the time, Dupuis told Global News that the board had implemented the Pride flag without a trustee vote while pushing for a referendum on the issue. He also believed the move would lead to another separation among the students.
