Calling all students, teachers and administrators:

On the evening of Thursday, February 12th we are launching our citywide Student Government Project. This is an evening for students, teachers and administrators from public schools to come learn about organizing and implementing effective student governments in their schools. It is also a day to begin communication between student governments and between the NYC Student Union and governments. During the meeting, we will collaborate on revising the Student Union’s student governmet model and help create plans for improving or implementing succesfull student governments in different types of schools. Participants in schools with successful student governments will share their experiences and give suggestions to students trying to start their own. Students, teachers and administrators will leave with helpful ideas, plans, tools and support for the improvement or creation of student governments in their schools.

The meeting will be held at 5:00 at the UFT Building (50 Broadway between Exchange and Morris). For directions, check If you have any questions email Emily:, Darien: or myself:

I will also try to post a flyer as soon as possible.

Happy Holidays to all!
