TUSD is committed to supporting the unique and varying needs of our students. With this goal in mind, we are working to identify solutions to ensure equity, enhance the quality of public education, and support the well-being and achievements of all students. We are forming the Superintendent's Student Leadership and Advisory Group because we believe that elevating student voices is critical in shaping conversations about education and creating meaningful change. In addition, selected students will engage in leadership experiences in the community as a way to build important skills for their future.

Superintendent, Dr. Tim Stowe, is seeking applications from a diverse array of high school students in 10th and 11th grade to participate in this unique opportunity. The goal of this group is to bring North, Shery, South, Torrance, and West High School students together to share feedback, experiences, viewpoints, and solutions on a variety of issues taking place in our schools and within the community.

Approximately 18-25 students will be selected to serve a minimum 2 year term. The first meeting is planned for early December 2021, at which time the schedule for the following meetings will be determined. Student members will be expected to attend and participate in each meeting, and if selected, will also be required to provide verification from parent(s) or legal guardian(s) with permission to participate.

Reference Requirement

Student applicants must identify a Teacher, Administrator, or Certificated School Staff Member (e.g. a Counselor, School Psychologist, Dean, Advisor, etc.), at their current school, to submit a Reference Form on their behalf.

Meeting Schedule

Meetings will be held after school (exact time TBA), with a rotating location at the high schools. The first meeting is planned for early December 2021, at which time the schedule for the following meetings will be determined. Please stay tuned for updates!
