Student Elections for BOE

Welcome to the Student Elections for BOE page!
 
In 2013 New Haven voters decided on a citywide charter revision referendum to create two student seats for student representatives on the Board of Education with the goal of strengthening youth voice in New Haven Public Schools and providing students an opportunity to have a stronger impact on their own education.

 
One student position will become vacant as of June 30, 2017. Elections will be held in April 2017 to fill that vacancy. Eligible candidates must be (1) residents of New Haven, (2) currently a sophomore who will be a junior in the fall 2017, and (3) enrolled in a NHPS school.
 
2017 Candidates coming soon!
