Area Wide Student Council (AWSC) grades 8-12 (we have had younger grades participate as well). Please share with your students and encourage them to join. This is a student advisory board that reports to the YKSD School Board. AWSC was established by students in 2009 to try and revive Student Government within our district. What we look for are 1or2 student representatives from each site to represent your school and attend monthly video conference meetings. At these meetings students share site updates, concerns, ideas or even plan events. This is a great leadership opportunity. Monthly meetings take place over VTC on Tuesdays at lunch, 12:00pm: October 5, November 16, December 14, January 11, February 8, March 8, April 5
