Discussed Student Board Member Election Process for 2023-24 School Year - In June 2022, the School Board received a student-initiated petition to add a seat for a student board member with preferential voting privileges. Students expressed an interest in having a more “impactful” role that would allow for student voice to be heard in all matters brought before the Board. A proposal to revise Board Bylaw 9150 was formally presented as a first reading on 8/10/22 and then the Board voted to adopt the new policy on 8/24/22. For the 2022-2023 school year, the board prescribed a process to appoint student board members from MHS and PHS who were 11th or 12th-graders in good standing for a one-year term. Interested candidates were required to complete an application form, respond to five questionnaire prompts, and submit two letters of recommendations and a transcript of grades. A committee of district leaders reviewed applications, interviewed semi-finalists, and then recommended finalists to the Board. Board members interviewed the finalists and decided to appoint three student board members to share the one-year term. Students board members for 2023-2024 and subsequent school years will be selected by the student body at MHS and PHS. A process for making these selections will be determined by the Board.
