Superintendents, High School Principals and Counselors:
The Mississippi State Board of Education (State Board) is excited to enter the second year of the Student Representatives of the Mississippi State Board of Education program. Following an extensive application process in 2019, two students were chosen and are currently serving on the State Board. As denoted in the attached letter from Mississippi State Board of Education Chair, Dr. Jason Dean, these students have provided an important perspective and their participation in the program has added tremendous value to board discussions and deliberations.
Applications are currently being accepted for a Student Representative who will be a junior in high school during school year 2020-2021. The application packet is attached for electronic distribution to students or it can be downloaded from the Mississippi Department of Education website (http://www.mdek12.org/MBE/Student-Representatives). Contact Donna Hales in the Office of Educational Accountability by phone (601) 359-2331 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
