The Cherokee County School District recently recognized its Student Delegates to the School Board for the 2017-18 School Year in appreciation of their service!
The School Board has included a Student Advisor position on its board since 1999, and, for the past seven years, a Student Delegate from each high school.
The Cherokee High School Student Delegate, Ashlee Floyd, this year served as the Student Advisor and sat on the dais with the School Board and adjourned meetings. Her fellow Student Delegates for the past school year have been: Arely Gonzalez-Labra of ACE Academy, Bryce Goodwyn of Creekview HS, Katie Bishop of Etowah HS, Christian Fanning of River Ridge HS, Theodore Campbell of Sequoyah HS and Katherine Relick of Woodstock HS.
They were recognized by the School Board and Superintendent of Schools at a recent School Board meeting at which they each were presented with a certificate of appreciation and special honor cords to wear at their graduation ceremony.
In addition to attending School Board meetings, the Student Delegates’ service for the past year has included: giving input and feedback to the School Board; participating in meetings and/or surveys to assist the Office of Curriculum & Instruction, the Superintendent’s Ad Hoc Calendar, Safety and Security, and Technology Committees, and the Comprehensive LEA (Local Educational Agency) Improvement Plan (CLIP) Review process; and sharing other student-based suggestions and input.
