Superintendent's Student Advisory Council - Now Accepting Applications!

We Need Student Voice

Monroe School District students in grades 8-11 are encouraged to apply to be on the Superintendent's Student Advisory Council for the 2023-24 school year!

The Student Advisory Council (SAC) is made up of student leaders from across our district who are interested in working alongside Superintendent Shawn Woodward and other district leaders to represent the needs and interests of the students of Monroe. Students will have the opportunity to share student voice, advice, and perspectives as well as to work on leadership, policymaking, and making a lasting difference in our community that's dedicated to and driven by students. 

Our goal is for this council to be representative of our diverse student population. All students are invited to apply and we highly encourage students who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQIA+ students, Multi-Language Learners, students who are native to other countries, students experiencing homelessness, students in foster care, and students with disabilities to apply.

The council will meet once per month. The Student Advisory Council membership consists of at least 15 Acting Members as follows:

  • 8th Grade: 1 each from HRMS, PPMS, and SVEC (3 Acting Members)
  • 9th Grade: 1 each from LILHS, and SVEC, 2 from MHS (4 Acting Members)
  • 10th Grade: 1 each from LILHS, and SVEC, 2 from MHS (4 Acting Members)
  • 11th Grade: 1 each from LILHS, and SVEC, 2 from MHS (4 Acting Members)

Student Members are in grades 8 through 11 and are representative of the diversity of Monroe School District. Our focus is to have student representatives who have historically been denied opportunities or discriminated against because of their identity. Students apply to participate on the council each spring and serve from June of the year they are selected through June of the following year. There is no limit on the number of years served.
