Student Council

Borger Middle School is very proud of the Student Council and the kids and sponsors that dedicate their time to making the campus a better place to work and learn.  The following information will provide you with information regarding qualifications, election process, duties of Student Council Officers and parent involvement.

Qualifications
BMS student council officers should be models of proper student conduct. For this reason, it is necessary that students seeking a position on the council meet the following standards:

  • Grades - May have no six weeks grade (average of all core classes) lower than an 85.
  • Absences - May not have absences equaling more than 10 % of the total number of school days for the year to date (exception: medical absences with doctor’s excuse).
  • Citizenship - May not have a U in conduct on any report card during the current year.
  • Discipline Referrals - The student shall not be allowed to run for office if the student is assigned to DAEP, OSS, ISS (5 or more days), or expelled from school in either the previous or current semester.

Student Council Election Process

  • Teacher recommendations will count as 50 % towards the final tally.
  • Student vote will count as 50 % towards the final tally.

Student Council Class

Each officer will receive a grade based on the performance in the designated Student Council period. The grade will be determined by their participation in class, bringing assignments when asked, etc. Tardiness is unacceptable. During this class period, officers will work on a variety of activities in lieu of having to stay after school.

Parent Involvement

Parent involvement is a great part of making each year successful. It will not affect a student's grade, but is STRONGLY encouraged. Please make not of yearlong, Fall, Winter and Spring Activities. During these times your participation and involvement will be greatly appreciated.
