Attention current Sophomores: SVSD School Board needs you!

 
Current Sophomores: Want to be a Student Representative on the School Board?
 
The Snoqualmie Valley School District Board of Directors values the input and perspectives of two student representatives - one senior and one junior -- who serve on the board each year. As our senior representatives prepare for graduation, our Superintendent Dr. Lance Gibbon is launching a process to select a new student rep, who would begin next fall for the 2022-23 school year.
 
Who is eligible? Any SVSD current sophomore may apply.
 
What are the responsibilities? Student representatives on the School Board attend school board meetings during the school year, typically twice a month on Thursday evenings. They provide "student voice" on key decisions that the Board considers and can learn first-hand how the school district operates. Student representatives serve as liaisons between Mount Si High School and the District - giving a monthly update presentation during a board meetings to help keep the School Board and community informed about activities at the school, and in turn, the representatives share important district developments with students. They also have an opportunity to join School Board members in their annual visit to Olympia, where they meet with legislators and advocate for public education.
 
What's the duration of the role? This has typically been a two-year role - during a student's junior and senior year.
