Webinar: Speak Out, Listen Up! Including Student Voice in School Improvement

Thursday, December 4, 2014
9:00am – 10:30am PST

Listening closely to what students say about their school experiences can be beneficial to educators for understanding and addressing school-related topics and problems and rethinking policies and practices.

REL West recently published a toolkit to provide educators with a purposeful and systematic way to elicit and listen to student voice to inform school improvement efforts.

The webinar provides an opportunity for educators to:

Understand the concept of student voice and the benefits of including student input in school improvement efforts;

Learn about three tools that have been found effective in eliciting student ideas; and

Hear from educators and students who have used the tools about how the process has impacted school improvement efforts in the Washoe County (NV) School District and elsewhere.
