How To Reach Your Student Representative

To share student feedback with the School Board Student Representatives, please email:

Portsmouth City School Board Student Representative

The Portsmouth City School Board values the opinions and concerns of students enrolled in the public school of Portsmouth. The student representative serves in an advisory capacity and does not vote. The student representative does not attend closed meetings. The school division provides the meeting agenda and other public materials to the student representative in advance of each open meeting.

The student representative does not have access to confidential information, including student or personnel records. The student representative is expected to attend all regular, open meetings and to complete assignments for research and data collection when requested by the School Board. If the student representative is unable to attend the meeting, the student alternate will attend.‚Äč
