Senior class president expectations
Being the senior class president is a very prestigious honor, and one that will give that person invaluable leadership experience. In addition, it is an excellent resume item for college and possibly for an eventual career. We only want a serious candidate who will have the requisite dedication that the senior class deserves. This position in not a guarantee for the entire year- the president must remain in good standing and the president’s performance will be evaluated monthly, based on the requirements in this document. Should the president be negligent in his or her duties, the position will be vacated, and if time allows, offered to another student. Whomever is the senior class president in April will be able to claim that role and be recognized by the Student Council as such in terms of using it on college credentials.
Please understand that a great leader does not have to be the hardest working person- actually, a great leader delegates work to others while following up to make sure that those helping out are staying on top of their responsibilities. For example- if you are working on getting the senior class apparel project completed and you have an October 15 deadline for the shirt design, you will want to have delegated off part of that role no later than September 5th. When explaining to anyone you assign a role to, you will need to give them deadlines that end well before your personal deadline. So, you would tell the student(s) working on the design that they have to report back to you on (example dates) September 15th, 25th, and October 5th and 10th. Therefore, you will not have any last-minute issues. Also, if your helpers are falling behind, you can assign different students to take over.
Aside from any of the requirements if you are one of the executive Student Council officers (see the Student Council homepage for details), the senior class president has six pressing matters to deal with during senior year:
Note: For any of these items, Mr. Coventry is here to work with you. You can always ask for help/guidance!
Finally, you will be expected to attend all Student Council meetings (there are only two per month) with no more than two excused absences (Mr. Coventry notified before the meeting begins). A list of meeting dates will be provided in August, and any meetings that have the date changed may be missed as long as Mr. Coventry has been notified before the meeting begins.
