Student Council

Candidates for Student Council may run for the following positions:

  • President – Eighth grader
  • Vice-President – Eighth grader
  • Secretary – Seventh grader
  • Sergeant-at-Arms – Seventh grader
  • Homeroom Class Representatives – All grades

Candidates must complete an application in order to run. The application consists of a brief questionnaire and essay and requires the recommendation of two teachers. This year, applications were made available on Monday, January 23, 2017, and they are due no later than Friday, January 27, 2017. Applications are available from Homeroom teachers.

Candidates should take into consideration that Student Council meetings are held every other week after school from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. (day to be announced). Students must provide their own transportation after school on that day.

Team teachers screen the applications and determine four candidates per office. Once the candidates are chosen, they may begin their campaigns. Campaign advertisements are limited to one campaign poster, no larger than 36″ x 24,” and are displayed on the walls outside the café. Campaign buttons/ribbons/stickers are permitted. Distribution of candy and other prizes to garner votes is not allowed.  Candidates also present a one to three minute speech sharing their platform in a video that will be aired school-wide.

All students register to vote and later vote through their homeroom classes. Each homeroom will elect a representative and alternate to constitute the Representative Branch of SGA.

Please direct questions to Mrs. Flowers or Ms. Badillo.
