Washoe Country School District
Student Advisory Board
The SAB is the voice of Washoe County School District students.
The Washoe County School District (WCSD) Student Advisory Board (SAB) consists of 28 students from WCSD high schools. The Student Advisory Board President, selected for each new school year, sits on the Board of Trustees as a non-voting member. The SAB is an exceptional team of student leaders who engage with school district staff and the Trustees in active, meaningful conversation. Their input, ideas, and advocacy are welcomed by the Trustees, and the students consider a wide range of topics including anti-bullying initiatives, cultural competency, school procedures, and possible changes to the school calendar--among other things.
Two members of the Board of Trustees serve as liasons to the Student Advisory Board. They attend and help facilitate each SAB meeting while garnering feedback from the students. The Trustees then relay the information they've gathered with help from the SAB President to the full Board.
The SAB was created in relation to Board Policy 5041: Student Advisory Board to the Board of Trustees. Read the policy here.

The SAB meets twice a month with the start of each new school year. During the summer, the student representative get together to help shape the program for the upcoming school year. The program is student-driven and provides learning opportunities for Trustees, students, and staff in a relaxed and respectful environment. It serves as a tremedous oppurtunity for student leaders who want to make a difference at their schools.
The SAB is open to all high school students within WCSD seeking to develop student advocacy and leadership skills. Please contact your principal if you are interested in being part of the team!
