This group will include diverse representation from key stakeholder groups. The group members will engage in conversations about the equity work and needs.

The student advisors were introduced to the Arlington School Board during its June 13 meeting. Lebahn will be sworn in at a board meeting in August. The other students will begin their service in September.

Arlington students are eligible to apply for the student advisor positions during their sophomore year. They must be in good academic standing and have the approval of a parent, a teacher/advisor/counselor and their principal. If selected, the student serves a two-year term during their junior and senior years.
