About All City Council

All-City Council (ACC) seeks to create positive change in our schools. We amplify student voice by serving as a bridge between adult decision-makers and the student body. We are a diverse team of student leaders who represent or are elected by the masses of students at our schools.

ACC organizes campaigns and activities to serve the assessed needs of our constituents, including addressing internalized, interpersonal, and institutional oppression in our daily lives and the daily functioning of our schools and working towards solutions. Through our work, we aim to create opportunities for engaging students on issues that affect them most whether it is directly at the school sites or at the district level.

THE ALL CITY COUNCIL GOVERNING BOARD IS HOLDING  ELECTIONS FOR ALL POSITIONS!!
