As of March 2012, the following Committees are active: 

 1. Academic Affairs: Deals with academic issues that arise; communicates between the Stuyvesant APs and parents.

Appropriations: The Appropriations Committee solicits and reviews requests for funding by students, faculty, and the administration.  Within the budget allocated to us, we grant funds to those requests we believe to be most deserving.

College: The College Committee works with the Stuyvesant High School Guidance Department and College Office to determine what assistance the PA can provide to the college counseling process at Stuyvesant. This committee helps to organize College Night in April, when representatives from 150 colleges throughout the country come to discuss their programs with Stuyvesant students. The PA provides dinner for the college representatives and needs volunteers to help organize and serve dinner. The PA also encourages parents to bring in desserts and other dishes.
