Student Advisory Group

  • sag logo

    We believe our students deserve to have a voice in how the school district provides for student learning and how our schools can be improved. That's why we created the District's first Student Advisory Group, that began in the fall of 2020.
    We invited students in grades 2nd through 12th to apply to be part of this new Student Advisory Group. This allows the students an opportunity to work directly with the Superintendent and District administrators, and to collaborate to help provide solutions to issues most important to students.
    Students that were selected (below) to be part of the advisory group meet regularly during the school year to discuss their interests, priorities and ideas for improving schools and student learning. Representatives of the group provide students in their schools with updates about School Board activities, and the Student Advisory Group chairperson will represent the group’s views to the School Board.
    PLEASE NOTE: Adhering to COVID-19 protocals, students are presently only meeting via Zoom.
