Student Advisory Board

Jody Huege(he/him/his) from the Student Advisory Board reached out on behalf of the SDUSD Student Advisory Board in regards to applications from Mann students for the Student Advisory Board of 2021-2022. This board aims to advise our student board representative, Zachary Patterson, and provide a diverse perspective in order to bring student voices to the district. They are seeking middle & high school students from Mann Middle School.

This board meets once per month to advise, provide feedback, and present viable solutions on district initiatives and programs. The board would really appreciate it if you encouraged our Mann students to apply so that Mann students can be well represented. Applications will be accepted through mid-November. Attached below is more information regarding the board and the link to apply.
