Intra-District Council, IDC, is an organization comprised of the representatives of the five high schools of the District. Each school is represented by its ASB President and two IDC reps. In addition, an IDC President, the Student Board Member, and the Advisor sit on this council. IDC meets twice a month usually the first and third Mondays. The goal of IDC is to improve relations between schools and to lessen some of the rivalry that sports create. IDC also works to implement some of the programs that students want. Any problems that the school’s ASB or the students themselves have are discussed at IDC meetings.
