High school student elected to New Haven BOE

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)  –  A second New Haven high school student has been elected to be a representative on the city’s board of education.

The city created two student seats on the board of education in 2013 to strengthen youth voice in the school system and to give students an opportunity to have a greater impact on their own education.

Mayor Toni Harp says “I congratulate the student leaders Coral Ortiz and Kimberly Sullivan on their courage in representing student leadership over this past year.”   Recently a tenth grader was elected by high school students to serve on the board 2016-2018.
