SWR: School board to add new student representative

SAMANTHA BRIX FILE PHOTO | Shoreham-Wading River school board president Bill McGrath, vice president Mike Fucito and trustee Jack Costas. The school board will vote Tuesday night to add a student ex-officio member to the board.

The Shoreham-Wading River school board may have a fresh, young face at the dais come next school year.

The board will vote tonight on a measure that would enable a high school student to serve as an ex-officio member.

The student, who must have attended the high school for at least two years, will be selected on the May 15 ballot during the budget vote. Ex-officio members are allowed to participate, but not vote, at school board meetings.

They also aren’t permitted to attend executive sessions.
