This section of the Hanover High School Handbook concerns how Hanover High School is governed. Hanover High School is a democratic school. Its Council is comprised of students, staff members, and community members. The Council shapes and informs handbook policies. The Board recognizes its commitment to the regular communication between the Board and the Hanover High School Council. A non-voting, student representative attends Board meetings and is responsible for presenting the interests of The Council to the Board and to bring the Board specific proposals and items of concerns. The Council also has regular meetings with Hanover High School Administration who then brings specific proposals and items of concerns to the Hanover High School staff.
