Student Government

A tradition since 1915
Student Government was born on our campus in February of 1915, and it is alive and well today! To see our present day Constitution, click here. Student Government is presently under the direction of Ms. Kungie, and with her students,
they are continuing a long held school tradition.
The Student Government class meets every day to plan and carry out its functions. Twice a month, our elected and appointed cabinet officers meet to discuss and determine how best to serve the Student Body of Canoga Park High School.

Edith Haas was our school’s 1st Student Body Vice President in 1915. The next year she became President.

According to our Constitution, we can have one appointed member for every elected member.

The purpose of Student Government, as written in our Constitution, is to promote student participation in school government, to promote an understanding of the educational and administrative objectives of our school, and to initiate and encourage the development of active citizenship…oh yeah, and to have lots of fun and make a difference!!
