To the Editor:

Vermont is one of the few states in the country with a full voting student member on its state Board of Education. Imagine being this student. You would be an integral part of the group that oversees education policy for the state of Vermont. I am now looking for interested candidates for this incredible opportunity.

The state board has supervision over, and management of, the Vermont Department of Education and the public school system. It consists of 10 members, including a voting and non-voting student member. The state board meets once a month for an all-day meeting.

I am looking for students who will graduate in 2003 or later for a two-year term on the board. During the student member & #039;s first year, he or she will be a non-voting member, and then will become the voting student member in the second year of the term. He or she will have full voting rights along with the eight other adult members.

To apply, please contact Barbara Agnew in my office at 802-828-3333. If you have questions about this position, feel free to contact one of the current student members, Isaac Evans-Franz ( or Miranda Jones (
