Application Process:
Class council elections take place the week after Executive Board elections. This gives people who didn’t make Executive Board the chance to still have a position. Students who are interested in running for class council will fill out an application and attend a meeting held by the EB Election Chairs.

At this meeting, applicants learn about speech and campaign requirements and determine whether or not they want to be an officer on their class council. Then, candidates will campaign for a week using posters, banners, flyers, stickers, t-shirts, etc. In addition, each student must have their speech taped by one of the EB election chairs during campaign week.

Once the week is over, the speeches will be played on the morning announcements during homeroom, and each grade will vote for its respective Class Council members. The top three in each category will be awarded the positions of President, Vice President, and 1st Officer, respectively, based on vote count.

Officers will create an application, once they are elected, for those interested in serving on a class council board. Students must complete the application to be eligible to be chosen by the three officers.
