The Mississippi State Board of Education (State Board) is excited to enter the third year of the Student Representatives of the Mississippi State Board of Education program. Following an extensive application process, two students are currently serving on the State Board. As denoted in the application and 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 2021-2022. Complete the application packet by January 29, 2021.
The application packet and more information is available on the Mississippi Department of Education website: mdek12.org/MBE/Student-Representatives.
