What We Do
The Student Board Member Curriculum Committee works to develop resources for Student Board Members across California. These resources will include overviews of important aspects of California’s education system, such as where schools get their money or the roles of teachers unions within a district, as well as create outlines and host workshops to help student board members pass initiatives in their own local school districts.
Why We Do It
At CSBMA, we are all too familiar with the fact that many student board members are left going in blind when they begin their terms, and the learning curve for them to become effective in their duties often wastes a large portion of their term. It is crucial for a student board member to be well-informed in order to be effective within their district. Otherwise, the role becomes largely symbolic and leaves room for districts to ignore student voices. To ensure this doesn’t happen, CSBMA is working hard to equip student board members with the toolset needed to make meaningful change within their school districts.
