Jan Helps to Launch New KCMO School District Student Council
Superintendent Covington is creating a district-wide student council in order to build student leadership and engage them positively in the district’s improvement efforts. He asked Jan to partner with Klassie Alcine and City Councilman Jermaine Reed to develop the student council. Klassie is immediate past president of the student body at UMKC. In high school Jermaine was president of his senior class at Northeast High School.
Jan , Jermaine, and Klassie plan to work with student leaders to organize the council, develop legislative procedures, and build leadership skills. School principals will recommend students to participate.
