Interim Superintendent Alicea is looking for dedicated, dynamic and diverse students to represent this year’s Superintendent's Student Cabinet! We are seeking three students, per grade level, per high school in order to have a cabinet filled with vibrant and varied volunteers!
This year, we will focus on the tenet of social justice and how you can become agents for your school, for the Syracuse City School District and for your community.
Social justice is defined as "... promoting a just society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity."
It exists when "all people share a common humanity and therefore have a right to equitable treatment, support for their human rights, and a fair allocation of community resources." In conditions of social justice, people are "not being discriminated against, nor their welfare and well-being constrained or prejudiced on the basis of gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliations, age, race, belief, disability, location, social class, socioeconomic circumstances, or other characteristic of background or group membership" (Toowoomba Catholic Education, 2006).
The responsibility for members of this year’s Superintendent’s Student Cabinet is as follows:
Schools will host one of 4 annual meetings
- Complete a team building activity
- Participate in an effective meeting session
- Attend a meeting every other month
- Complete 2 group community service projects during the school year
- Attend closing activity
If you would like to be a part of this year’s cabinet and be an agent for social justice, please return your completed application to your school counselor by October 18th. Cabinet members will be notified by October 25th. The first meeting will be held November 2nd.
