JIB: Student Involvement in Decision-Making

  • As appropriate to the age of students, class or school organizations and school government organizations, such as student councils, may be formed to offer practice in self-government and to serve as channels for the expression of students' ideas and opinions. 

    The School Committee will take into consideration student opinions in establishing policies that directly affect student programs, activities, privileges, and other areas of student sensitivity.

    Students will be welcomed at School Committee meetings and granted privileges of speaking in line with the privileges extended to the general public.

    Student Advisory Committee

    As required by state law, the School Committee will meet at least once every other month while school is in session with its student advisory committee, which is composed of five students elected by the high school student body. The chair or designee of the student advisory committee shall be an ex-officio nonvoting member of the School Committee without the right to attend executive sessions.
