It is important for each potential SCA/Project Management candidate to keep in mind the commitment and responsibility that you are accepting when applying to be a part of the STUDENT COUNCIL ASSOCIATION (SCA) of INDEPENDENCE HIGH SCHOOL.  The SCA is an organization that represents the entire student body, and its leaders play a special and critical role in creating traditions for future generations and making student government both a vital and contributing part of IHS.

    Please note the the SCA Officer election process and the SCA Executive Board member selection process is entirely separate from the Class Council election process. A student may be a member of the SCA Executive Board and a Class Council officer; however, a student may not serve as both an SCA Officer and a Class Council Officer. The Class Council Officer election process will take place once the 2019-2020 school year has begun.
