California State Board of Education accepting student board member applications

Applications for student board member positions on the California State Board of Education are currently being accepted for the 2025-26 school year. 

According to a statement from the state board, any California high school resident enrolled in public school can apply but must be a senior and in good standing by the 2025-26 school year. Those chosen will participate in a statewide student leader conference from Nov. 10-13 in Sacramento that the board will pay for.

Student board members will also receive a $100 stipend for each day of official business, and expenses for travel, lodging, and meals will be covered, the statement said.

Student board members are required to attend at least two regular board meetings every other month in Sacramento, go to a one-day orientation, and set aside time to review agendas, which may include consultation with board staff for background information. Student board members will also attend advisory group meetings, student meetings, workshops and conferences. The deadline to apply is Sept. 24 at 5 p.m. For more information go here.
