The Student Government is back! Student voice is crucial for empowering students to take ownership of their education, school, and, ultimately, community. As the vehicle through which students can voice their concerns and
debate culturally relevant issues, student government provides the forum
through which respectful, well-reasoned change can democratically
East's student government is modeled after the American federal system of government, with separation of powers and checks and balances. Elections were held this Spring for the four Executive Branch positions: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. In the Fall, the Executive Branch will hold an election for the Legislative Branch, with positions open for five members from each class. Elections for the Executive Branch this Spring were on June 2nd and June 3rd during the lunch hour. Scholars cast their ballots in a lever-based voting machine, the kind used to vote in New York State from the 1960s to 2010.
