Student Council meetings are scheduled on a rotating basis. Council representatives are excused from class to attend the meeting. However, the representative has the responsibility of checking with his or her teacher and is responsible for any work missed during that period. The teacher may refuse permission to the representative to attend the meeting. It is imperative that the representative realizes that schoolwork comes first. If a representative is unable to attend a meeting, it is his/her responsibility to inform the Student Council Advisor and/or one of the Student Council Officers.
