STUDENT LIAISONS TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE
The following policy was presented for a first reading at the January 7, 2019 School Committee meeting and will be considered for adoption at a future School Committee Meeting.
The Smithfield School Committee supports the inclusion of high school student representatives to the School Committee each year. The student representatives will serve in a nonvoting capacity, although they will be encouraged to weigh in on all matters of concern to the student body. The student representative shall attend business meetings and shall be encouraged to attend workshop meetings. The students shall act as liaisons between the School Committee and the student body. The student representatives shall be excluded from executive sessions.
The procedures for nomination and selection of a student liaison to the School Committee are outlined in policy BBAB-R.
