Student Advisory Board

BraPurpose & Mission

The purpose of the Round Rock ISD Student Advisory Board (SAB) is to provide an avenue of participation and involvement of secondary student leaders in the District. The SAB will offer advice on student concerns to the Superintendent from the perspective of the students in RRISD. The primary mission will be to promote the RRISD goals through student input into those areas that impact student performance, safety and security, dropout prevention, and other areas of concern.

Membership

The SAB will consist of a total of approximately 28 students from Round Rock ISD secondary campuses. Typically, the membership will be made up of middle school student council presidents,  high school student council presidents, high school senior class presidents, and high school junior class presidents.  Superintendent (or designee) may request to add an additional student(s) to the SAB.  A staff member designee will also be assigned by the Superintendent to serve as the group Sponsor.

Term of Service

All members of the Student Advisory Board will serve for one school year or at the conclusion of their term in office at their campus at the end of the academic school year.
