The Student Council represents the voice of the students in the democratic management of student affairs at Harvard H. Ellis Technical High School. It is the organization through which the administration, faculty and staff as well as the student body cooperate in addressing the concerns of the school.

The Student Council is the student activity governing body. It is comprised of representatives from each class. Students on the Council speak for the entire student body. They meet once a month for the purpose of conducting regular business and other matters which may be brought before it for consideration.

Student Council must approve each Student Activity Program. All requests for fund-raising, student activities and purchases made from student activity funds must be approved by the student council.

The Student Council also has two members who attend the COC Student Senate meetings and Student Congress from the Technical High Schools. These students keep the school in touch with area schools with similar extracurricular and interscholastic programs.
