    Student Advisory Board to the Superintendent

    The Seattle Public Schools Student Advisory Board is formed of student representatives from each district high school. The advisory board will provide student voice, advice, and perspectives to Superintendent Juneau and will meet with the superintendent throughout the school year. The goal will be to help ensure all students graduate from Seattle Public Schools ready for college, career, and community.

    The Student Advisory Board (SAB) will explore a wide range of issues framed around Ensuring Educational and Racial Equity (Policy 0030), including welcoming school environments and equitable access for every student to a high-quality curriculum and support. Read about Policy 0030.
