Student Senate

Representing the District’s more than 200 schools, Student Senators work with the Board of Trustees and Administration to discuss ideas and concerns about education, share their perspectives and propose solutions to current challenges.

WHAT IS THE STUDENT SENATE? 

The Student Senate is made up of up to two students from each of the District’s 24 high schools. They are elected or appointed for one school-year term.

After a two-year developmental phase, the Board of Trustees approved the Student Senate model in 2015. The first Student Senate formed in the 2016-17 school year. 

ROLE

Senators collectively gather student feedback. They use that feedback to prioritize areas of focus. From there, they develop a workplan for the school year. The Senate meets monthly to work on projects and give progress updates.

TIMELINES

In September, the Senate elects a Student Senate Executive and three Student Trustees.

Student Trustees attend three public Board meetings a year to: 

  • present their work plan for the year (October)
  • give an update on progress related to their workplan (February) 
  • report on the year's results (June)
