ASSOCIATED STUDENT BODY (ASB)
The Student Council at Culver City High School is composed of about 40 students, both elected and appointed. The executive body consists of 10+ students who were elected during the Spring Semester of the previous school year. Along with the executive body, Student Council consists of in-house positions including PTSA and Site Council representatives, Class Council leadership, and Student Council members.
All meetings are held in room 16 during 4th period.
Student Council meets daily.
Business meetings are held Tuesdays and Thursdays.
ASB / Student Council Duties and Responsibilities
Over the course of the year, Student Council organizes various events including Homecoming and its festivities, assemblies, an annual Talent Show, and our annual Tailgates. Students engage in the process of planning events and influencing issues that affect them through use of surveys, elections, daily student bulletins/announcements, and by welcoming notable guest speakers and performers to campus.
Aside from planning various events, ASB keeps track of Culver City High School’s budget, serves as high school representatives on the school board, and facilitates House of Representatives. We incorporate the voice of our student body in this process in order to encourage involvement and raise student morale.
Furthermore, we make an effort to correlate these events with curricula being taught in classrooms and involving the High School’s Student Outcomes in ASB’s day-to-day conduct and holding of events. For instance, one way in which the Student Outcomes of “Involved Citizens” and “Adaptable Problem Solvers” are implemented is by publicizing current global issues and presenting feasible options to the school in order to help solve these problems, such as placing donation boxes in every classroom or advertising an array of volunteering opportunities for students to participate in.
Student Council holds three Blood Drives a year that students, staff, and the community are invited to participate in. Donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds, not have donated blood in the last 60 days, and be in good health. The Blood Drives take place from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM in the High School Gym. For more information, contact Dr. Carlos Valverde, ASB Advisor.
