Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,
Thank you for your outstanding support in championing the growth and development of St. Vrain Valley Schools into a nationally recognized center of excellence for student engagement and 21st-century learning. Your unwavering dedication to the well-being and success of our students, teachers, staff, and schools is a testament to the outstanding community in which we live.
The Student Senate is an after school club available to SVVSD high school students. The club exists to examine Colorado’s legislative process and provide student feedback on existing legislative proposals. We will meet prior to the 2019 legislative session to review the process in general. After the legislature convenes in January, we will meet bi-weekly to review and discuss actual legislation. Depending on the size of the club, we will either have small-group discussions, or we will implement the "rules of the Senate" and conduct mock debates exploring the merits and deficiencies of different proposals.
Please note: We will continue accepting interested students throughout the year. If you miss a meeting, or can't make all the meetings, that's okay. All high school students are welcome to attend and please feel free to bring a friend.
The final meeing will take place at the Colorado State Capitol, on Thursday, March 21.
Notes, agendas and minutes for upcoming meetings and previous meetings can be accessed by students via the following link.
