504.01 – Student Government

In order to encourage student participation in the various activities of school life and to provide opportunities for training in democratic processes, the schools of the District may maintain and operate student councils.

Such councils shall assist in improving the general welfare of all students and shall give students the opportunity to participate in the orderly workings of the democratic process.

Such councils shall not have authority to make policies for the District or regulations for the school; nor shall they have any disciplinary authority, except for recommending removal of one of their members from the council. However, a council may make recommendations to the administration on any topic of student concern.

The administration and student council of any school shall keep channels of communication open, not only between themselves but between all students and the council.
