       policies, regulations, practices, and procedures. Active involvement in the planning and implementation
       of student activities, civic events, and community service projects sponsored by the Student Senate are
       a major focus of the organization. Meetings of the Student Senate begin on the first Tuesday of every
       school year, and all students are encouraged to attend and to get involved by becoming a member.
       Students involved in the Student Senate are strongly encouraged to enroll in the one-credit hour
