The annual student school board meeting

I have seen student legislatures, but I've never seen this:
River Edge students took this idea and ran with it during a student-led school board meeting on Wednesday, which gave them the opportunity not only to discuss where they would like to see air conditioners or what basketball hoops are beginning to age, but hit on a harder topic: how to stop racist comments in their community.
The student-led school board meeting has been an annual tradition in the district for 26 years. It aims to give students a taste of civic engagement and serving their community at an early age, said Superintendent Tova Ben-Dov.

This sounds great.
