Student Government Officers

Election to a class officer’s position is a significant honor and responsibility. Class officers are class leaders and role models and should abide by the rules in the Student Handbook and maintain academic eligibility (MIAA Standard) in order to participate in Student Government. If a class officer fails to meet these expectations, the Principal may suspend or revoke a student’s class office.

Their first responsibility is to carry out their duties as outlined in the Constitution.
