Part of the District’s Strategic Plan Initiative is to elevate student voice through peer to peer relationships. This small group of diverse 5th graders are selected by administration, guidance, and 5th grade teachers. They meet once a month and review data from the school effectiveness student survey. Based on student responses the group decides on area of need to focus on for improvement. i.e respect for others at our school. These students gather information from students on all grade levels, with specific questions relating to the area of focus, by talking with them and connecting with them. After gathering information from a sample of students from all grade levels, with the support of student voice sponsors, the group sets an action plan to help improve in the specific area of focus. The group’s goal is for students to feel that their voices are heard, and action is being taken to make improvements within school culture.
