Invested in the workings of City High’s very own bureaucracy? You’ve come to the right place.

The Student Senate meeting on Wednesday, April 25 began with the opening of prom ticket sales for lunch and after school. Tickets will be sold in the cafeteria during lunch and after school and in the library both times as well as before school.

The Senate will send out a survey on proposed Homecoming Court voting changes. “Student Senate is proposing that this [process] become more inclusive of LGBTQ+ students,” the survey, written by Xeniphilius Tyne ’20, said. The survey puts forward two options for this increased inclusion: the elimination of gender categorization entirely or the creation of a system in which students declare their preferred gender before voting and can opt out of the voting pool if need be.

The Senate meets every Wednesday morning in room 3311 at 8:15 am. To learn more, contact Steve Tygrett, the primary faculty adviser, or attend meetings, which are open to all students.
