Student Life

Walt Whitman High School Student Government Association

The Student Government Association is the official representative body of Walt Whitman students and an avenue of communication between students and staff. The principal duty of the SGA is to learn about and discuss all students' views when meeting with the administration.

The SGA is an elected group, made up of SGA officers, class officers, and delegates elected from each second period class. Generally, the SGA general assembly meets monthly. SGA and class officers, except Freshmen, are elected in the spring. Freshman class officers and second period delegates and their alternates are elected after school begins in the fall.

The SGA also charters clubs and sponsors assemblies, speakers, community service campaigns, spirit week, dances, and other social and service events.
