The Council is made up 45+ students, HHS faculty and staff, and community members. Founded during the 1971-72 school year and endorsed by the Dresden School Board (DSB) in 1977, it is one of three governmental bodies involved in the decision-making process at Hanover High School, including HHS Administration and the Judiciary Committee (J-Comm).

Current AGENDA / Minutes

Council Agenda 5.17.23 / Minutes 5.10.23

The most recent Council minutes (from the last meeting) and agenda (for the next meeting) can be found on the left.

The agenda is set by the Council Executive Committee every Monday morning and the minutes are written by the Council Secretary.

The agenda/minutes are important for the general public and school community (but especially Council members) to read and review.

Council Meeting Attendance

Council Attendance - 2022-2023

You can find the attendance taken every meeting by the Council Secretary on the left.

Planned absences and tardies are denoted by 'AE' and 'TE,' respectively.

Any unexplained absence from a Council meeting results in an 'AUE.' A Council member who arrives more than 15 minutes late for a Council meeting loses the right to vote for the entire meeting, and will also be given a 'TUE.'

It is strongly encouraged to review attendance records before voting in Council elections.

More instruction on attendance policies is detailed in the Council Bylaws [Article III, Section E, Clause 1, Subsection A].

Council Roll Call Record

A "N" indicates a vote (nay) against the motion.

An "A" indicates an abstention.

It is strongly encouraged to review roll call records before voting in Council elections.
