Deerfield’s Student Council serves as the primary conduit between the students and the administration. The Council meets two times a week to discuss the most relevant issues facing the student body and the school, and to put forth proposals for approval by the faculty. Issues garnering the Student Council’s attentions include everything relating to quality of student life, student discipline, student privileges, and school culture. The Council runs a website to keep the community up to date on all Council proceedings.
The Student Council has multiple representatives from each class, as well a president, a student council chair, a post-graduate representative, and two day student representatives. A full list of current members is available on the Student Council website. All positions are elected yearly, and all students are eligible to run for Student Council.
