High school principals recommend students to participate on the student board. Candidates go through a rigorous interview process before being appointed to serve and attend regular board meetings.

Student board members attend leadership trainings and meet with Akron Public Schools and community leaders to serve as the student voice to the elected board. Students each spoke of the honor in leadership they felt and about how the experience has shaped them. Student board members received and gave awards to the elected board members who serve as their mentors.

Each student board member received a trophy and their earned Leadership Excellence Credential Certificate. The Leadership Excellence Credential can be used to meet requirements for high school graduation. Please click here to view the presentation on YouTube >>.

The student board was established in 2019 under the leadership of previous APS Superintendent David James, Ed.D., and former board members Lisa Mansfield and Patrick Bravo.
