Student Board Member

The Contra Costa County Board of Education is accepting applicants for a student member for the 2023-24 school year. 

Student members of the Contra Costa County Board of Education will be responsible for advocating on behalf of students and will be considered full members of the board with certain exceptions. They can make motions that may be acted upon by the Board and cast preferential votes on all matters except those subject to closed session. Preferential votes are recorded in the minutes and cast before the official vote of the County Board. Preferential votes do not affect the final numerical outcome of a vote.

Student board members cannot participate in or receive closed session materials because those discussions often include topics such as student discipline or other sensitive matters.

Eligible applicants are any student enrolled in a public high school in Contra Costa County who will be a junior or senior in the 2023-24 school year and is not the child or grandchild or a current member of the Contra Costa County Board of Education or Cabinet-level manager for the Contra Costa County Office of Education.

Priority will be given to students who currently attend or have previously attended a CCCOE school or program or have an immediate family member who currently attend or have previously attended a CCCOE school or program.

Applicants will be interviewed by an ad hoc committee of the CCCBOE and voted on by the full Board.
