Student Representatives participate in all SBOE activities. Their votes are recorded, though they cannot affect the outcome of any policy measure. Student Representatives are expected to attend all official SBOE meetings, which occur on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Student Representatives serve as Student Advisory Committee co-chairs.
The Student Advisory Committee (SAC) serves as the voice of District students in the State Board’s work. They are consulted on all issues of policy before SBOE. SAC meets at least once per month. Each year, SAC sends SBOE a report on a matter of importance to District students, providing recommended next steps.
This is a joint application for SBOE Student Representative positions and Student Advisory Committee seats. By submitting this application, you will be automatically considered for both roles.
All applicants must be:
- a District of Columbia resident in school year 2019-20- a rising sophomore, junior, or senior in either a traditional public (DCPS) or public charter high school
The application is due SUNDAY, APRIL 28, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.
