Student Government Association (SGA)
Student Government is representative-based and modeled loosely after the U.S. Congress. Separate middle school and high school Student Government members are elected and meet weekly to help plan activities and to organize and manage life at school for other students. The Student Government shares students’ ideas, interests, and concerns with teachers and school administrators. They help raise funds for school-wide activities, including social events, community projects, helping people in need and school reform. Input from Student Government is considered in evolution of the rules and regulations at Franklin. In this way, Student Government functions as a linkage institution between students and the administration. Lastly, since the meetings are student-run, members learn leadership skills that are an extension of their formal education and will hopefully carry on to their college career and beyond.
Peer Support Council (PSC)
Peer Support Council (PSC) is a group of students, elected by their peers. They serve as resources to assist with peer mediation and conflict resolution and support both in and out of class. These students contribute to a positive climate at school. Members of PSC receive training in mediation and conflict resolution skills. PSC convenes as needed with students and crew leaders that are involved with honor and/or discipline violations. After the PSC hears a case, it makes a recommendation to the Dean of Students and/or Executive Director regarding consequences or restorative justice. The PSC uses the Franklin School’s “Code of Conduct” as the basis for all recommendations.
