We gave out over 100 applications.  Please know all DSA students are leaders in some way.  To protect the integrity of this program we have a selection process in place.  Selection is based on a committee decision of teachers and community leaders.  Administration is not included in the selection process.

How the Student Leadership Team members are chosen:

  • Application with 3 recommendation forms have been turned in on time and all forms are complete. 
  • You have followed all directions to fill out the packet.
  • You attached 3 recommendation forms and they are sealed in an envelope with the teacher’s signature across the seal. (1 arts, 1 academic and 1 community contact)
  • You turned the application in on or before it was due on Wednesday, May 31st.
  • A committee of teachers will look through the applications and narrow down the applicants to 25.
  • The top 25 will be chosen to move on to the interview level.  This list of students will be posted on Thursday, June 1st to know whether they will receive an interview.  Interviews will be held during the school day on Friday, June 2nd.  Interviews will be scheduled in a tight block of time.  The 25 top applicants will be scheduled for a specific time and they will not be rescheduled for any reason. 
  • The final list for the 1718 Student Leadership Team is posted HERE.


Enjoy and stay safe! See you in August.
