"Students are the most significant stakeholder within the education system, but rarely are they included in decision-making. Students are treated as passive consumers of education rather than active contributors to learning. Research and practice have told us that student voice leads to greater engagement, greater well-being, improved school climate, and lower dropout rates." taken from http://studentvoicei.org/
Student Voice is a student driven action group with equal representatives randomly selected from each grade. Students meet monthly and provide authentic and honest feedback into the operation of the school. This is driven by two questions:
How do we increase student engagement at VCHS?
How can we empower students at VCHS?
We hope students can attend most of the following dates but understand if they are unable to attend all of them. If a student is unable to attend a specific date we ask them to find a grade level replacement.
