Fairfax County School Board Now Searching for New Student Representative

The Fairfax County School Board is looking for a new student voice.

Every year, a high school student is selected to serve as a representative on the School Board.

Applications for the position are currently available online and are due March 18.

“The student representative is not a member of the School Board but serves in a nonvoting, advisory capacity, representing the interests of the students of Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS),” according to a post by FCPS.

The student representative will be required to attend meetings and engage in discussions with members of the School Board. According to the school board bylaws, the student representative will receive compensation for their participation in meetings, but not to exceed $50 per day.

Students in grades 9, 10, and 11 are eligible for the position.

Applicants will need to attend the election convention at Edison High School on April 11 and speak in front of the Student Advisory Council’s student delegates. The delegates will then elect a representative to the board.
