Chester County Student Forum

Mission Statement

The Chester County Student Forum exists to strengthen bonds between Chester County high schools and the community and to foster student leadership. These goals are met in the following ways:
  • Through volunteer and community service projects
  • Discussion and exchange of ideas at meetings
  • Interaction with students from different high schools across the county
  • The formation of connections between students and administrators
Delayed High School Start Time Initiative
 
During the 2015/16 school year, the Student Forum formed a sub-committee to research the impacts of a delayed start time for high school students. Full details can be found here.  The Student Forum Delayed Start Time Committee (DSTC) was created to assess the potential benefits and obstacles of delaying high school start times. Its goal was to determine whether or not pushing back the start time of high schools within Chester County would have a positive impact on students, and if the positive impact would warrant further investigation into strategies to overcome potential obstacles to its implementation.

Who is the Chester County Student Forum?
Student Forum 2015.16
 
The Chester County Student Forum is comprised of student leaders from Chester County's public, private, and non-public high schools. Students are selected to become members of the Forum by their school's Student Forum faculty advisor. 
 
What does the Student Forum do?

Members of the Forum meet monthly to discuss current issues which are of interest to them and which confront their age group. In addition, members participate in a variety of community service projects. 
 
Most recently, the Student Forum has volunteered at the Chester County Food Bank, the Barn at Spring Brook Farm, and the Salvation Army. They have also raised funds and donations for the Joy of Sox, Alex's Lemonade Stand and the Chester County Food Bank.
