School is out for the summer. The June edition of WSESU Connection is out.

WSESD Student Advisory Committee

The Student Advisory Committee of the Windham Southeast School District Board is made up of Brattleboro Union High School students – including the two student representatives to the WSESD board. 

Mission Statement:

 The student advisory committee’s purpose is to bridge the gap between students, staff, administration, and the WSESD School Board. We are a collaborative body that strives to provide a better school environment emotionally, physically, and academically so that students know they are recognized as a person over a student. We have two student representatives that are a part of the school board and directly report to their peers. We work with the shared goal to represent a community with a diversity of needs and close gaps that limit educational possibilities.

Current members include:

Kaiya Colby (12th Grade) – WSESD Student Representative –

Benjamin Berg – (11th Grade) – WSESD Student Representative –
