Classes that don't have their own class council should be advised that they may need a class council. Usually a class council is established by the class teacher but has its own set of officers or offices, which are speaker, secretary, rule monitor and time monitor. The offices are usually assigned for a single meeting of the class council or several but few meetings of the class council. Participation in a class council can be voluntary. If a class doesn't have a class council but a class representative the assistant teachers can ask the class representative to recommend or to establish a class council. All classes that receive assistant teachers should have a class council or a class representative in order to be able to make formal requests to representatives of the different assistant teacher groups. All classes that have assistant teachers as pupils should have a class council in order to be able to make formal requests to their own group or groups of assistant teachers, usually concerning qualification, disqualification and monitoring, and to be able to ratify the charter for a grade council.
