Student Board Representatives
In February 2010, the board implemented Policy 1200 which approved the addition of two student representatives to the board of directors. The role of the representatives is to provide student insight and perspective to the board; serve as liaisons to the high school students; and report to the students about the work of the district and the board of directors. Below are our current representatives.

Her teacher recommendation states, “She has excellent communication skills, works well with adults, and possesses a professional demeanor. I can recommend her without reservation.”
