Associated Student Body
Every student at DeSales is a member of the Associated Student Body, known simply as ASB. The entire student body elects ASB officers, president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer in the spring for the following school year. The Principal approves candidates for these positions based on criteria and process information published by school administrators for the student body's use at least three weeks prior to elections.
The Student Council, an executive-legislative body of the ASB, is composed of the ASB officers, two elected representatives from each class, and one member from each club approved by the Council. The Council aims to develop maximum participation in school activities, encourage school spirit, and work toward full cooperation with faculty and administration. For the general welfare of the school, the Council acts as the sounding board for student opinion and the coordinating body for school-wide activities. Many of the spiritual, academic or social activities sponsored by DeSales are the result of student initiative and planning.
Any DeSales student, although they do not have a vote, may attend council meetings and voice an opinion or make a proposal to the Student Council.
ASB officers are expected to uphold and maintain the highest standards of DeSales, to include leadership and citizenship of the school mission statement. Officers failing to meet these expectations may be removed from office by the Principal.
