Student Government is a class composed of a group of students who, through leadership, service, and collaboration, coordinate and organize school-wide and class activities. Students are assigned to a number of committees that organize dances, rallies, ASB elections, and club events. Students of the same graduating class work together to organize and fundraise for class-specific activities, such as Junior Prom, Senior Ball, Float Building, etc. Students will receive 10 units of elective credit for passing both semesters of Student Government.
