When does STAP Comm meet?

STAP Comm meets one Monday every month, at 7:00 pm in the High School Commons.  The agenda for these meetings is set on the Tuesday two weeks prior to the meeting, after school in room 163.   

So what happens at these meetings anyway?

As soon as you arrive at the meeting, be sure to sign in on the sheet at the front table.  There will also be a few piles of documents and name tags- make sure to pick them up on your way to your seat.  The meetings begin promptly at 7:00 pm and vary in length.  We follow an agenda and work our way through all the issues.  At the end of the meeting there is a time called “Public Speak-Out.”  This time is meant for brief announcements, suggestions, comments, etc.  Anyone can speak during Public Speak-Out, including guests.  If you have something to talk about, raise your hand and your name will be added to a list.  For more information, please see the officers or advisors in homeroom 163.
