• JFB: Student Advisory Committees


    Ohio Revised Code requires each high school offering grades 9 through 12 in the Cleveland Municipal School District to establish a Student Advisory Committee.

    In each high school, the principal and the Cleveland Teachers Union (CTU) chapter chairperson or other CTU representatives employed in the school determine the composition of the school's Student Advisory Committee. In addition, they determine the process for selecting the members of the Student Advisory Committee. This process must allow all students enrolled in the school to be informed about and involved in the selection of members of the Student Advisory Committee.

    Each high school's Student Advisory Committee makes regular recommendations, but at least semi-annually, regarding the following:

    • Teaching and learning
    • Technology
    • Student engagement
    • Academic culture and graduation rate
    • Bullying and other disruptive behavior
    • Monitoring the progress of changes

    Other issues requested by the District or board

    Each school's Student Advisory Committee provides copies of its recommendations to the Chief Executive Officer, the school principal, and its CTU chapter chairperson. In addition, the District posts the recommendations on the District website.

    Community schools sponsored by the Board of Education or that have agreed with the Board of Education to endorse each other's programs must establish a Student Advisory Committee if they offer grades 9 through 12.
