I’m so happy you are visiting this page. If you are interested in running to be the Student Trustee, here is some additional information about what is requires.
This has been such a great experience for me. Being able to make a difference for your campus at the district level is so rewarding!
To apply to be a student trustee a student you must:
Be enrolled in five semester units
Be in good academic standing throughout the
term of office
Must have completed a minimum of twelve
units in the District at the time of nomination
Must maintain a 2.0 grade-point-average during the entire term of office
The student trustee position is a paid position and is available to anyone who qualifies!
If you are able to check all of the boxes above, here is a list of the responsibilities.
-The student members are seated with the Board and are recognized as full members of the Board at meetings.
-The student members are entitled to participate in discussion of issues and receive all materials presented to members of the Board (except for closed session).
-Student trustees are considered to have the same responsibility to deliberate for the good of the District as do other trustees.
-Student trustees are held to the same high standards of trusteeship, including participation and preparation, as are all trustees, they are valued as elected members of the board and their role and contributions are just as important.
-Elected student trustees meet with the Chancellor or a designee monthly to review the board agenda and discuss pertinent and topical issues.
-As a valued member of the Board, other trustees rely on the student trustees for their perspective and insight.
