About School Board Student Rep Positions

With the goal of including student voice in school board meetings, two Monroe School District students (one junior and one senior) serve as student representatives on the school board. 

Each spring, one new incoming junior is selected to serve a two-year term when the current junior rep moves up into the senior rep position. Last year Sophia Willett from Monroe High School was selected as the junior rep and she will be serving the second year of her two year term as the senior rep in the 2024-25 school year. The new student rep will serve alongside Sophia next year.

Criteria for Serving as a Student Board Rep

  • Student reps must be enrolled in the Monroe School District and remain so throughout the length of their term.
  • Student reps should be able to effectively communicate and represent the needs and interests of all Monroe School District students, which includes those that may differ from their own.
  • Student board members must commit to attending all school board meetings throughout the school year (some exceptions may be made). School board meetings are typically held on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 5:00 p.m. Transportation assistance for the student may be provided if needed.
