Each representative must exhibit excellent behavior in the classroom (an “S” in conduct and work habits), as well maintaining a “B” average throughout the school year. Students running for Student Council are required to obtain parent permission. They are also asked to write and give a brief speech to their class, explaining why they would like to serve on Student Council.
