Student Government League
Volunteer Sponsor Jamie Nash-Mayberry 


Student Government League members are elected democratically by their classmates.  There are two members per class, and members meet at least twice a month to discuss school issues.  This group was designed to give students  a voice in how the school is run.  Members' goals are to better the school by suggesting areas for improvement to faculty and administration.  Each month at least two members attend school board meetings & receive the opportunity to voice their opinion about school policy.

Below are the Student Government By-laws:


-Each class (Freshmen-Seniors) will elect two representatives to the League at the beginning of the school year during their first class meeting.

-Reps serve a term of one school year, but can be re-elected each school year.

-Reps will attend bi-monthly meetings with Mrs. Nashberry during SAT or lunch to discuss suggestions for school improvement and areas of concern.  Additional meetings may be called if situations arise that need discussed.

-Administration and Faculty will take the League's recommendations into consideration when establishing school policies.

-Reps will be responsible for gauging the opinion of their class on various school policy related issues during class meetings. This may be done verbally or in the form of surveys.

-Reps may attend any/all school board meetings throughout the year including summers, but will be required to attend two per year.  A staggered schedule will be developed so that each meeting has two reps always in attendance. 

-Reps will be expected to demonstrate good character, be professional in League meetings, and be respectful of others' opinions.

-Receiving an ISS in a school year, missing more than 8 days per school year, or repeated behaviors deemed unprofessional can result in removal of the Rep from the League.

-Should a vacancy arise, the League would then take letters of interest from the specific class in which the vacancy existed and the League would then appoint someone to fill the vacancy.
