ASB Officers conducting a weekly meeting on the fly before hosting another event.
Though we know how to put on a great event, an ASB student leader's main job is to learn to oversee and manage the spending of student money on campus. We have a weekly business meeting to review campus-wide student club expenditures, fundraising, events, etc. ASB will review the forms and requests being submitted, discuss, and vote to approve or deny them. We follow Robert's Rules of Order when we conduct our meetings. There are yearly audits conducted by our district business office and some years even the state board of education sends auditors in to review our practices as well. We begin the year with interim officers and host a school wide election day after potential officers have had time to campaign (1.e. posters around campus, speaking at lunchtimes, on the Colts News and or on the morning announcements).
ASB CAN BE A LOT OF FUN! If the student leaders fundraise and plan ahead the class can get to attend various opportunities for growth.We host various events and go on some awesome field trips. Typically ASB will attend a CADA Leadership Development Days training and a Disney Youth Education Series Leadership Training. These are full day field trips. (It is the student leaders responsibility to make up work that will be missed). Or we may take a free, walking field trip over to our neighbors at Eleanor Roosevelt High School to enjoy a high school pep rally or join in a guest speaker experience.
