Here are different facts about roles for students on school boards in Washington.

  • In 1972, the Washington state department of education reported that they encouraged local school boards to consider roles for students on school boards.
  • Today, students can join district and state school boards but cannot vote on either.
  • Methods to select district representatives vary across the state.
  • According to a 2005 article, “The Washington State School Directors Association estimates that just 20 students serve among the state’s 296 school boards. The seven-member Seattle School Board has no student representative.”
