Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC)

Some people make things happen. 
Some people watch things happen. 
Some people wonder, what happened?
If you want to make things happen and not just watch it or stand and wonder, then get involved! 

CRASC - What is it?

CRASC, the Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils, is a county-wide representative organization of secondary school student government associations which serves as a forum where students can speak out and help shape the direction that the educational system will take. CRASC is involved in everything from school discipline procedures to course design and development of curricular programs in your school. As a sounding board for students' feelings and ideas, CRASC is structured to take these thoughts and present them to the proper policy-making body, whether it be the Board of Education, County Government or the State Legislature.

Don't just complain about a problem; become involved in finding a solution!

The advisor to
CRASC is the
Administrator of Student Leadership and Involvement for Anne Arundel County Public Schools. The Student Leadership & Involvement Office provides leadership training and opportunities for you to use your skills.
