School Council

The School Council is made up of students and faculty. It is often an unseen entity, since it concerns itself with curriculum and not social activities. Many decisions are made by the Council concerning curriculum changes, evaluations and awards. Elections are held in September and there is one student representative for each year of RTA. Council student reps let the faculty know how things are going with the students--any issues, challenges, requests, etc with respect to curriculum, access to equipment, space, support, etc. School Council's vote is required for any changes to the RTA curriculum and significant RTA policies. In between meetings, School Council reps are expected to be in contact with their constituents to find out what's on their minds and what issues they want to have brought up at the next council meeting. It's also a rep's responsibility to report back to their constituents on what goes on at the meetings, what changes may be under consideration, etc.
