The School Meeting meets weekly, and is comprised of students and staff each with an equal vote. School Meeting members may make motions, participate in debate, vote to approve, deny or amend any motion and generally voice their thoughts. Motions may be submitted to change school rules, allocate funding for field trips or educational resources, or any other needs or interests students have. The School Meeting also hears Judicial Committee appeals and provides weekly announcements.
The School Meeting is run by Robert’s Rules of Order. Students and staff hold elected positions such as School Meeting Chair, Secretary, and clerkships. The School Meeting Chair is in charge of keeping the meeting in order, and the secretary is in charge of accurate record keeping.
