The CRIS Secondary Student Council is a student-led democratic organization serving the student body, contributing positively to the local community, and working to advance the Vision and Mission of the school.
The Council is led by an Executive Board who meets once or twice per week, headed by a President, Vice President, and three Secretaries, who are selected by a vote of all secondary students at the beginning of each term. Their purpose lies in serving as leaders for school events and liasons between students, teachers, administrators, parents, and the community.
Fourteen Homeroom Representatives comprise the voting membership of the Council, with two students voted in by their peers at each grade level for each term. Representatives are responsible for advocating students’ needs, and serving as role models for younger students. In addition to participating actively in meetings and events, the Council also distributes information, publicizes activities and gather useful information needed to carry out its duties.
The Secondary Student Council abides by an Honor Code which specifies that all Councilors have a duty to participate diligently, model exemplary behavior, excel in academics, and demonstrate school spirit.
