Souhegan’s Community Council was founded in 1992 during Souhegan High School’s first year of service. A representative body of forty-seven members, the Community Council’s task is to create and modify school procedure. Community Council is purposefully diverse and student-led: twenty members are students elected by their grade, ten members are faculty, five members are from the school’s surrounding community, and ten representatives are elected in the fall as “at-large” members. The representatives discuss and vote on various proposals concerning student life, school initiatives, disciplinary procedure, grading procedure, and any other matter of importance to the school community.

In this session, presenters will help participants appreciate the importance of a student-centric council, understand the structure of Council and the capacity necessary to design a council, and engage in a design lab with student and adult Council members to create a plan of action.
